Maximum 4 separate photos, jpeg format (best quality you can get, please). Include your name, address, email address, telephone number and write “Container Contest” in the subject line. Please include a list of plants used in the container(s) and their source (local independent garden center, friend, wherever).

Look for all Container entry photos to be posted right here on our Facebook page in August and vote for your favorite! Photos with the most “Likes” will determine the top 10 finalists. A panel of judges will determine first, second and third place winners from the finalists. Containers will be judged on visual appeal and plant selection (color combinations, textures, heights). Judges’ decisions are final. Winning containers will be featured in the Jan/Feb 2018 issue of Chicagoland Gardening.
