Celebrate Beautiful Roadsides
Annual photo competition coming soon
Grab your cameras and get outdoors to photograph native plants and the open road. For the sixth straight year, the Wildflower Center will host a wildflower and native plant photography competition, with the support of Texas Highways magazine. In honor of the 50th anniversary of the passing of the 1965 Highway Beautification Act, this year’s contest theme is Beautiful Roadsides. We will begin accepting entries here and on Facebook on June 1 and will finish accepting entries by June 30.
We are celebrating the beautiful scenes that are afforded to us along our roadsides, courtesy of the pioneering work by Lady Bird Johnson and President Lyndon Baines Johnson. All photographs must feature native plants or trees taken in any season in any year along any North American roadside. Don’t leave the road out! People are part of this picture too, so the road must be visible in the picture.
This year’s competition will allow your friends and family to vote on your entries. There will be no private judging associated with the competition. The top 3 public vote winners will receive complimentary Wildflower Center memberships or renewals of current memberships (which include reciprocal access to 300-plus gardens nationally).
Wildflowers are making an appearance already in some regions; so don’t delay. Get outdoors and get some roadside wildflower photos to enter this summer!
