Our Photo Contest Finalists and Winners for 2016
Our 2016 photo contest saw a new category introduced, pollinator-friendly gardens. It joined the pollinator category from previous photo contests. We had 215 photos submitted in total for both contests, which a jury of five Pollination Guelph board members narrowed down to their top 12 in each category. Participants at our April 2, 2016 Pollination Symposium then had the opportunity to vote for their top three photos in each category; the photo with the most votes won a gift certificate to a local native plant nursery. Below are the winning and finalist photos. Visit our photo contest page for more information on this contest, which will run again in 2017.
The winning pollinator-friendly garden photo for 2016 was of a bed of flowering coreopsis. It was taken by Bob Noble in the Medicine Wheel Garden at Heart Lake Conservation Area.
Bob won a $50 gift certificate to Native Plant Source. Thanks to Native Plant Source for their generous donation!
The winning pollinator photo for 2016 was of a bumble bee approaching a lavender flower. It was taken by Charles Iscove at his home in the Toronto area.
