“I hate flowers — I paint them because they’re cheaper than models and they don’t move.” GEORGIA O’KEEFFE, New York Herald Tribune, Apr. 18, 1954 found on BrainyQuote.com
Each flower by its very nature is beautiful, but is yours the Beautiful-est of ALL. That’s the challenge….
Make us swoon for your bloom, people, and I’ll forgive the pollen, and congratulate you….with a prize of a fabulous flower power beach towel.
It should be that midway point between spring profusion and summer saturation of blossoms in New England and elsewhere so find a posy – any kind of single posy will do, and submit one photo per person, only one, in the One Perfectly Pretty Flower – 24-Hour Photo Contest(c) (for procrastinators!) Pics must be received by 11:59pm EST on Monday, June 11, 2012.
Every one can find a flower – so no excuses – find it, photograph it and enter it now.
ONE PERFECTLY PRETTY FLOWER – 24-HOUR PHOTO CONTEST HOSTED BY MY BLOG – https://brain4rent.wordpress.com/. DEADLINE – By 11:59 pm EST on Mon. Jan 11, 2012
“The splendor of a rose and the whiteness of the lily do not rob the little violet of its scent nor the daisy of its simple charm. If every tiny flower wanted to be a rose, spring would lose its loveliness.” St. Therese of Lisieux found on ThinkExist.com
RULES: Submit your best photo of a single flower (any type) by email with a Subject Line of: One Perfectly Pretty Flower to firstname.lastname@example.org. Only one photo per person. Identify where photo was taken as best you can. Because time is limited to take the photos, a wider range of pics could be our winner.
JUDGING: Photos must be predominantly of a single flower, so while other flowers or plants may be in the picture, one should stand out predominantly.
Depending on the quantity received, photos may be divided into up to 4 categories and they will be posted on the blog on June 13. Then anyone and everyone will visit https://brain4rent.wordpress.com/ to vote for their favorite in each category, and/or an overall favorite.
Judging will be blind, so please do not watermark your photos.
CONTEST IS OPEN TO PERSONS LIVING IN CONTINENTAL USA ONLY, AS THAT IS AS FAR AS I AM WILLING TO SHIP THE PRIZE.
SINCE VOTING IS BLIND AND BY THE PEOPLE, EVEN FAMILY MEMBERS CAN ENTER.
Selection of the populace is final.
PRIZE: Grand Prize Winner will receive one Perfectly Florid (in the good sense) Beach Towel. So sniff up some Flonase (use only as directed) and spread the word near and far about the contest…..and the voting.
