All category winners will receive a Land F/X trophy.

Planting

Plants should be somewhat mature and in the most picturesque time of the blooming cycle. Day or night, choose a time that will produce the optimum light/shade combination.

Irrigation

Provide photos that show the beauty and depth of your design. We'd love photos with the irrigation running, but the irrigation plan along with photos is also acceptable.

Details

Choose your most intricate, detailed (pun intended) creations. Submit photos of the finished site along with the actual details you created with Land F/X and used in your design.

Night Shot

Does your site look particularly fetching during the witching hour – or any time after dark or before dawn? Give us your best nocturnal (but well-lit) shots.

3D

Our best tip for winning this category: Use a third-party rendering engine for SketchUp or Rhino. Then complement your site photo with your high-quality rendering.

Aerial

Give us your top-shelf top-floor perspective of your site. Whether your vantage is from a drone, helicopter, or even a tall building, make the view as close to bird's-eye as possible.

Lively Space

You design spaces for people – show us those spaces in action! This category will recognize the best view of a space where people (and maybe animals) are visibly active.

Video Animation

Did you create a stunning 3D model of your site? Why not turn it into a walk- or fly-through animation? Want some help making it happen? See our Creating Animations in Photoshop and SketchUp webinar.

Easter Egg

Did you sneak something unexpected into your site photo? It could be your pet, a sign, a landmark, or the hidden touch of your choice. Clue us in when you send your submission.
