Contest categories

Submit for any or all of the categories below. Our judges will select a winner for each category, as well as 1st-, 2nd-, and 3rd-place overall contest winners. Entrants can also click to pick their favorites in each category for our new People's Choice Award. The award goes to the top total vote-getting image.


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.

Vote for Planting Photos


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.

Vote for Irrigation Photos

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.

Vote for Hardscape & Details Photos


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.

Vote for 3D Photos


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.

Vote for Aerial Photos

Before & After

We love to see the process – show us the construction in action! This category will recognize the best transformation of spaces with before and after photographs.

What we’re looking for

  • 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?

  • Projects of all sizes and types – including residential, commercial, resorts, government or institutional sites.
