Contest Rules and Information:

Applicants must first purchase an entry on the St. John’s website. You will receive a receipt of your purchase, forward this receipt along with your pictures. Pictures will then be sent to church@stjohn316.com titled with your name and the category it is entered under.

One picture to be submitted for each entry (so take a nice one!). A single photo may be used for multiple entries, if applicable. Cell phone, and regular camera pictures will do, we are not voting on photo quality, but on plant quality! Make sure to take the pictures horizontally (not vertically! I liked these tips for garden photography

Should you wish to enter but do not have access to a camera or credit card, please contact us and we will do our best to accommodate you!

Submissions will be anonymous and given an alias for public voting.

If there are no submissions for a certain category, the second place winner of another category (determined by the judges) will be chosen for the final calendar.

Final judging for the Grand Prize winner will be completed by Todd Hoover, a professional landscaper with It’s About Thyme Landscaping. A home visit for the finalists may be requested. Todd Hoover and Rebecca McKay will not be submitting any entries in order to be fair.
