BHG Photo Contest

We love seeing pictures of your gardens. Those snapshots help us as editors see what’s happening throughout the rest of the country, give us ideas for our own home gardens, and help us identify yards to photograph that might possibly end up being published in Better Homes and Gardens magazine, Country Gardens, or on!

If you love showing off your garden, we encourage you to enter our garden photo contest. It’s free and easy — and you could win one of four cool prizes. Three runners up, as voted by BHG readers, will receive gift certificates for the BHG Garden Store. And one grand prize winner (as picked by the BHG editorial staff) will win their choice of annuals, grown just for them by the folks at Proven Winners, a pair of self-watering planters from Lechuza, and watering equipment from Dramm.

The entry period runs until Friday, June 29th —- then come back and vote on your favorite runner-up photos July 9 to July 20th.

It’s all happening right here: The Your Best Garden Photo contest on Facebook. So come on in and show us pictures of your yard!

Check Out Our Photo Contests!

We’re used to showing off pictures of great gardens in the pages of our magazine and Web site. So it’s a real treat when you turn the tables on us and share pictures of your great gardens.

And it’s exciting right now that we have two photo contests going on right now where you can show off photos for a chance to win cash prizes!

Home: It’s Where Life Happens is a contest where we’re asking you to show off little tidbits of your life — whether it’s dining on a patio, relaxing in the back yard, or maintaining your garden. The grand prize is $5,000 and the winning photo will be published in an upcoming issue of Better Homes and Gardens® magazine. This photo contest runs through September 30, 2010.

We’re running the Best Blooms photo contest through the end of August, 2010, and we’re looking for you to show off the prettiest flowers in your landscape (such as this awesome shot of bougainvillea from reader sholland205). We’ll have a different winner each week in August; each winner will get $250. Best of all, you get to vote, so upload your photo this week for voting next week.
