Enter the 2013 Homestyle Garden Photo Contest

If you’ve been busy getting your hands dirty in your garden and are ready to show off the fruits of your labor, we’d love to see what you’ve created.

Enter photos of your garden in our Homestyle Gardens Photo Contest. Each week throughout the summer, The Detroit News’ Homestyle team will select a winner whose garden will be featured in the Welcome Mat column on Friday and receive a home or garden book.

At the end of the summer, a grand prize winner will be selected who will receive a $100 gift certificate from English Gardens.

The judges primarily will be looking for overall shots of your garden, rather than closeups of plants,  but feel free to share those as well.  Photographs should accurately reflect the subject matter and the scene as it appeared; images that have been digitally altered beyond standard cropping and toning are not eligible for prizes.

The contest is open to all amateur photographers, except employees of The Detroit News, the Detroit Newspaper Partnership and their immediate families. The submission limit is 10 images per person per week.

You can upload your photos here.  After your entry  is processed you can see your photos and all of the other entries in the Homestyle Gardens gallery.

Happy growing, everybody!
