Photo Contest Submission

Submit your photos to the 2019 Catch the Color Photo Contest.
Submissions deadline,  Wednesday, May 1, 2019.


Flowers – Show us interesting, unique and beautiful pictures of flowers at the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm. They can be shot using macro lenses and modes, or consider a zoom, wide-angle or creative lenses. Don’t limit yourself, and get creative!

Details & Macro – Getting in close is the trick for this category. We welcome pictures of small details that tell a larger story. Don’t restrict yourself to just flower shots, think abstract; a water drop, insects, leaves, ice crystals, etc. Anything goes as long as it is in a tight composition. Remember that a macro image of a flower might also go into the Flower category.

Landscape & Field – These pictures include landscapes, sunsets, field shots of the tulips and may also include hot air balloons or other major landmarks in the fields.

Catch All – This category is for the pictures that may not fit with the other three categories. But remember: it must be taken at the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm and may include landmarks such as the tractors, windmills, wooden shoes, or pictures with people and animals, etc.
