The Winterscapes photo contest is all about awarding gardens, art and play in the winter. You can create a winterscape in your front yard, community hall, office/business building or school. Consider hosting a winterscape-building party with your family, friends or neighbours. You can nominate your own winterscape or someone else's!

There are exciting prizes to be won each week just for submitting!
