CHICAGO BOTANIC GARDEN
Digital Photography Contests
Our Orchid Show contest is February 13 – March 15, 2015
We hope you will join us February 7 at 9 a.m. for our next free photo walk. Free monthly photo walks are held as part of the Garden's seasonal Digital Photography Contests. Please note the meeting location for this month's walk will be Alsdorf Auditorium.
Show us your photos that best capture the magic of the Garden! We are looking for a unique artistic effort that captures the joy of being in the Garden.
Our digital photography contest will recognize two Grand Prize winners to win a Garden membership each.
Winners of our contest will have their photographs featured in downloadable wallpaper galleries on our website, seen by close to a million people each year, and may be featured in various Garden publications. The Grand Prize winners will each receive complimentary one-year memberships to the Chicago Botanic Garden.
A photo gallery will be updated each week during the contest, so that all visitors to our website will see contestants' work.
Questions? Contact or call (847) 835-6844.
