Three groups of plants – one group of enthusiasts worldwide

Photo competition 2017

This page gives access to the photos that our members have supplied of their most noteworthy photos.
Select a category from the list above to see the new photos that have been submitted.

If you would like to contribute, please send your digital photos (as jpg files) to Stephen Lyus at his email address of:
Photos can be either portrait or landscape, with the minimum length of the longest side as 300 pixels. There is no limit on the maximum length of the longest side.

Best Photographs of the Year
The photos will be judged at the end of this year and prizes awarded for the following classes:

* Group of plants from one or more of our three genera in a garden setting
* View from a garden visit with RCMG members visible
* Macro of a diagnostic feature eg: leaf bud, flower part,indumentum, scales
* Amusing glimpse of plant collector/ gardener with their plants

Please make sure you identify which class you are entering when sending me your entries! These classes will be judged by a group of 3 of our members. So I am also looking for volunteers who have some experience of photo competitions to make themselves known to me. These photos will then be displayed on our Home page for the duration of the following year and as an additional incentive, each member who submitted these photos will be rewarded with a monetary prize.

Whilst we are making this change to rejuvenate the competition, I must re-iterate that we still need good photos of our plants. These individual flower photos will no longer be in the competition.
