Water-Smart Landscape Photo Contest

This notice is archived content and this information may no longer be accurate.
We have all heard that a picture is worth a thousand words, so WaterSense is showcasing just how beautiful, efficient, and diverse low water-using landscapes can be! Enter WaterSense’s Water-Smart Landscape Photo Contest by submitting your photo(s) today!

Participation is easy and open to the public, including homeowners, landscape designers, irrigation professionals, and anyone else committed to saving water for future generations! Multiple submissions are welcome and photos can depict landscapes from any time of the year (or even past years).

Photos of landscapes that depict water-smart landscaping principles in an attractive way will be featured in the Water-Smart Landscape Photo Gallery next spring (with submitter credit). WaterSense will give priority to photos presenting landscapes with:
  • Drought tolerant, low water-using, or native plants
  • Mulch around shrubs and garden plants
  • Limited or functional use of turfgrass
  • Water-efficient irrigation design and components (e.g., micro or drip irritation, weather-based irrigation controllers, etc.)
WaterSense will share some of the best, water-efficient and aesthetically pleasing submissions on the EPA WaterSense Facebook page for voting. One or more photos earning the most votes will be showcased as WaterSense’s model(s) of a water-smart landscape in the program’s leading materials on outdoor water use and in other venues.

Submit your photo today!
The deadline to enter is February 15, 2013.
