The first Photographic competition resulted in a calendar for 2017, which sold out. 2019 is our forth year, and the NEW 2020 Calendars are now available! (limited stock only). Postal price is £ 1:50 per calendar to a U.K. address. Currently, the competition runs between December and April, but if you have any question or require advice, you can contact the email provided at any time of year.
Any kind of camera can be used, and as long as the photo\s are plant\garden related, they will be acepted. The full sized image is required, and the member submitting the photograph\s must be the person who took the image. The competition is open to C.G.S. members only.
NOTE: If sending photographs taken on mobile devices, please see Help & Information lower down the page.

HELP & INFORMATION
When taking photographs on a phone, try to take them in landscape format. Portrait might look good, but leaves no room for editing, and they won't be usable to the calendar.
If you use cloud storage, check your settings. As a default, all cloud storage will back up a smaller version of your photographs. This might be fine for viewing and sharing on small screen mobile devices like phones, but is of no use should you want to enter competitions or print your own photographs. To avoid this issue, adjust your settings to maximum, but always try to send photographs directly from your phone\tablet. Or, if need be, from a Computer.
3G services will shrink your images even when attached to an email, this is due to the restricted bandwidth of the service. 4G sometimes shrinks images depending on your monthly allowances and what your settings are. Some times the phone settings are such, that it will shrink all images above a certain size before sending. This can sometimes affect WiFi use as well.
SENDING BY POST:
