Instructions for Submitting Your Entries
The link to submit entries will be sent to you via email when you register for the contest. If you did not receive the email, send us a note at .
You may submit up to two (2) designs.
You may submit one (1) image of each design. For best results, follow these guidelines.
Photos must be high-resolution (at least 300 dpi). Low-resolution images will be disqualified.
Make sure your photo is well lit with the design and garden roses prominently featured.
Because we use an "anonymous" judging method, photos with watermarks or other identifying information will be disqualified.
Garden roses must be prominent in the design; you may add greens, fillers, and other flowers.
You must provide the names of the garden rose varieties used in your designs. You may use any varieties of garden roses; they do not need to be grown by Alexandra Farms.
You will be asked to provide your name, contact info, location and social media handles.
You will also be asked to provide the photographer's name and social media handles.
You may publish photos of your entries on your own social media accounts or website at any time before or after the contest closes.
Designs will be evaluated on the following criteria:
How garden roses are used in the design
Overall design aesthetic and composition
Photo quality is also important.
All finalists are chosen by the team at Alexandra Farms. Because we receive hundreds of entries each year and to keep the voting process manageable, we are unable to include all entries in the online vote.
The Fine Print
By submitting your entries, you confirm that you are 18 years of age or older.
