Daffodils to Dahlias – Art competition

Notices, What's New Posted on Sat, January 11, 2020 02:10PM

Entries not due in until 7th April but this gives you time to plan.

Daffodils to Dahlias – Springfields Gardens through the Seasons‘ Competition

Springfields Horticultural Society are again sponsoring a competition for our members. This will be held at the Spring Flower & Gardening Show 18/19th April in the Springfields Events Centre

There will be prizes for 1st, 2nd & Public vote

The subject can cover any aspect of the gardens, be it flowers that grow there or scenes of the garden in any season. Images to be no larger than 20” x 20” including any mount or frame. Mounted paintings should be wrapped in cellophane – we do have a few mounts/cellophane wrappers left for an 8”x12” picture.

Remember that we are an Arts & Crafts Society so entries can be textiles, embroideries etc but must be able to be hung.

Framed pictures / canvas on a frame must be strung properly for hanging – the little hooks etc on bought frames are not enough. Hand in will be on the 7th April at the demonstration. Unsold paintings will be brought to the 5th May demo meeting. One entry per person.

There are reference photos on the website for anyone that needs them.
