The Gardenista Considered Design Awards are back—and we’re inviting all readers, professional designers and amateur gardeners alike, to submit your best efforts to this year’s contest. The awards are open to all kinds of gardeners: Homeowners, apartment dwellers, landscape architects, and garden designers are all welcome to submit (as are architects, interior designers, and design novices in Remodelista’s contest). Finalists will be selected by a panel of judges (to be announced soon), and winners will be chosen by public vote.
Submissions will be accepted Friday, June 1, through Friday, June 22.
- Best Edible Garden
- Best Curb Appeal Project
- Best Hardscape Project
- Best Outdoor Living Space
- Best Amateur Garden
- Best Professional Landscape
Winning projects will receive a full feature post on Gardenista, and each winner will get a $500 gift card to shop our prize sponsor Schoolhouse, based in Portland, Oregon. In addition, professional winners will receive automatic entry into the Remodelista/Gardenista Architect/Designer Directory.
Who Can Enter?
We’ll publish our complete Terms & Conditions with the launch of the contest, but readers in the United States and Canada (excluding Quebec) are welcome to enter. You may submit multiple entries per category, and each entry may include up to 10 photos (minimum 1,000 pixels wide). Please do not submit projects that have already been featured on Gardenista. You’ll be required to submit a short paragraph describing your project and a brief caption for each photo.
