2013 Canon "Catch the Color" Photo Contest





We will announce the winners to this years contest on our Blog and our Facebook Page at the end of June.

We will contact all the winners through email before the results are announced.

DEADLINE FOR ENTRIES:
Submissions Closed

Categories Include:

  • Flowers – Show us interesting, unique and beautiful pictures of flowers at the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm. They can be shot using macro lenses and modes, or consider a zoom, wide-angle or creative lenses. Don't limit yourself, and get creative!
  • Details & Macro – Getting in close is the trick for this category. We welcome pictures of small details that tell a larger story. Don't restrict yourself to just flower shots, think abstract; a water drop, insects, leaves, ice crystals, etc. Anything goes as long as it is in a tight composition. Remember that a macro image of a flower might also go into the "Flower" category.
  • Landscape & Field – These pictures include landscapes, sunsets, field shots of the tulips and may also include hot air balloons or other major landmarks in the fields.
  • Catch All – This category is for the pictures that may not fit with the other three categories. But remember: it must be taken at the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm and may include landmarks such as the tractors, windmills, wooden shoes, or pictures with people and animals, etc.
