What to do?
In line with the title of the new book, we are looking for inspiration . And as inspiration comes from nature but also from other Bonsai trees you may submit two entries:
- a tree in nature you find absolutely stunning
- a Bonsai tree that inspires you
Also, explain why both images inspire you!
- Open to all registered users at BonsaiEmpire.com
- The competition runs for three weeks, until monday the 19th of March, 2012.
- You may submit two entries (please submit both seperately); one entry with a tree in nature, and one entry with a Bonsai tree.
- The submitted photos belong to you, or permission is granted by its owner (please state the owner clearly).
- Oscar (admin) can't win
- Harry Harrington selects the three winners, his decision is final.
Great to see the competition up and running Oscar!
I'm looking forward to seeing some great images from you all, particularly shots of inspirational trees in nature. Sometimes such images can make great material for future books
Good luck everybody!
Ahh, is that the real first prize? A mention in your next book?
I'll keep you posted about the competition and have you decide on the three winners in three weeks.
It would be for me. I have already pre-ordered this book weeks ago Main problem will be which tree to select. So many old and/or bend and/or worn down trees in Twente (Netherlands). But I guess the trees from friendly Holland will not make a match against trees growing up in the rockies.
