Judging Guidelines

Judges will look for images emphasizing composition, design and color aesthetic images, as opposed to those that merely document or convey information.

Inclusion of people, hands, rulers or other extraneous objects in photos is undesirable unless they add aesthetic value.

Photos of fruit, flowers or foliage attached to a live plant are preferable to photos showing them severed and displayed artificially.

It is essential that the photo subject be in sharp focus.

Unfocused images are discouraged except in unusual cases, for a desired effect.

Fruits, buds, flowers, roots or any vegetative plant parts are suitable subjects, but all plants or plant parts displayed should be recognizable as a source of produce edible by humans. Pictures of plants grown strictly as ornamentals or for aroma, wood, animal feed, soil conservation or general landscaping are inappropriate Examples of images which will not be considered include (but are not not limited to) photos of Daffodils, Tulips, Begonias, Lantanas, Amaryllis and Nondescript Flowers. Cultivated or wild plants, including edible weeds, are acceptable.

General Rules

Anyone may enter. No purchase is required. Color prints and digital images will be accepted. All photo prints and digital images entered become CRFG property and will not be returned.

By the submission of each entry, the entrant warrants that he or she is the creator of that image and grants to CRFG the right to reproduce the image in Fruit Gardener magazine and elsewhere, with attribution to the originator.

CRFG will duly consider each image for the prizes listed above and will award a prize to the entrant, or his or her assignee, for any image judged a winner. Entries will be judged by the Development Fund Committee. Winners will be announced and winning photos will be displayed at the Festival of Fruit in Campbell, California, on July 28, 2018.

There is no limit to the number of entries that can be submitted; however, no contestant will be eligible to win more than 2 prizes in this year’s contest.

All entries to this contest become CRFG property, and the contestant relinquishes all rights except the right of attribution.

Print Rules

Only color photos in print form will be accepted.

There is no limit to the number of prints that can be submitted.

The minimum print size that will be accepted is 3 inches by 5 inches. Larger print sizes are preferred.

If possible, please send negatives along with prints.

A brief description with each image is requested, but simple identification of the subject is sufficient.

Do not write on the fronts of photos for any reason.

Do not write directly on the backs of photos; use pre-gummed labels on the backs of photos and write on the labels.

Pre-gummed labels on photo backs should also be used for the entrant’s name and address.

All entries must be received by June 15th 2018, and must be mailed to:

CRFG Development Fund Committee
Attn: Emory Walton
335 E. Gainsborough Rd.
Thousand Oaks, CA 91360
