Guest Judges of the 2014 Considered Design Awards

We’re thrilled to announce a new addition to our awards program this year: a roster of garden- and design-world luminaries as guest judges. 

Each judge will review one contest category alongside the Gardenista editors and will choose up to five finalists for his or her category. After that, the winner will be chosen by you!

How to Enter:

We’ve simplified the entry process. Write an overall design statement describing your project and submit up to six photos of the project, along with a separate caption for each photo. You may submit one project in each category for which you qualify. All projects will be published in the Gallery tab of the contest site within a few minutes of submitting. For each category, a guest judge will work with Gardenista editors to review all the entries and choose up to five finalists. After we announce our finalists, we will invite friends, family, and fellow Gardenista readers to cast their votes.
