Contest categories

Submit for any of the categories below. Our judges will select the best photo in each category to determine the winners.


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


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.

Hardscape & 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.


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

Products in Place

Show us how you best used a manufacturer's product, specified using the Manufacturer Connection, to turn your space into a place. You can choose to focus on one or multiple pieces of equipment that highlight your site's character.


We upgraded our lighting module extensively last year, and we still glow with excitement over projects that are seen in a different light. Choose an alternate time of day to showcase your design features and the fixtures that illuminate them.

What we’re looking for

  • Projects that have been installed for one year or more.

  • Preferred submission packages will provide the full range of the project by including CAD drawings, 3D models, animations, and/or details, along with photos and/or videos of the completed site.
  • Eye-catching designs of lively, inviting spaces. Does the landscape complement and enhance the site, and does it feel part of its surroundings? Are the colors balanced, and is the plant material well suited? Are the site-built elements functional, durable, and comfortable? Is this a place where our judges would want to spend a day or evening, just because of how embracing the site design is?
