  2. Each participant may submit one 5x7 photo or 8x11 photo of their garden.
  3. Photo may be color or black & white. Photo must be an original photo in color or black & white taken by the entrant in 2018 within the City of Elyria.
  4. Photo must be suitable for a family environment. We reserve the right to deny any photo entry. Entries not complying with all contest rules will be disqualified.
  5. No identification of the entrant is allowed on front of photo (ie. no watermark or signature)
  6. Photo may not be digitally enhanced aside from minor editing/color correction (ie. No digital collages or added elements not naturally appearing in the photo).
  7. Once submitted, photos will be mounted by library staff for display at the West River Branch Library lobby. The display will be up between August 1-31. Judging will take place during the month photos are displayed. Judges’ decisions are final. Winners will be awarded at our Garden Club Meeting on Wednesday, September 5th.
  8. Once the photo display has been taken down, entries must be picked up at the library by Friday, September 7th. The library is not responsible for entries not picked up by that date.
