Guidelines

  • Each member may submit up to ten photos. You may use these same photos again in our October photo contest if you wish.
  • Please include for each picture: your name and the name of the variety. If you do not know the name, label it as a NOID, meaning no ID (no identification)
  • Submit photos by emailing them in groups of 1-4 to submissions@tucsoniris.org.
  • Photos may be of any of your irises that have bloomed from January 2020 though the original show date of April 25. This provides a much longer interval than just whatever is blooming at our usual show time!
  • Photos may be of irises growing in the garden
    no need to pick them for this kind of show! It is fine if they have been picked, though.
  • Each photo should focus on one variety and not be a general picture of your iris garden. It is ok if other varieties are visible -just have the chosen one in the center of the photo.
  • Please submit only one photo of any particular variety.
  • You must have grown the irises in your photo submissions.
  • Although this is not a photo contest, please submit only clear pictures. See the tips on p.2 of the April newsletter. A piece of posterboard can be used to block out a busy or unattractive background.
  • Deadline for submissions is April 25 at midnight.
