TPPC 2014: Week Two Winners!

Author: admin  //  Category: landscaping ideas

The tallies are in for week two of the Tropical Paradise Photo Contest! With so many great photographs in the submission queue this time around, it was like pulling teeth trying to find a consensus on the winners, but we rallied and came to some good conclusions.

We’re now into week three of the contest as far as submission windows go, and the number of people contributing is still climbing—which we love. Frankly, the more the merrier. The judges and I thrive on a good challenge. But while we’re on the topic, I must remind all newcomers to our contest that the only way to ensure we see your entries is to tag each photo with “#tropicalparadise” when you upload it to our Flickr group. No variations on that, please! Even if we do happen to see a photo with “Tropical Paradise” in the title, we can’t be sure that you intended to submit it officially, and you know what they say about assumptions.

Otherwise, everything has been going swimmingly (aside from our weekly winner announcements, which are a day late as per usual). Keep the photos coming! And without further ado, here are your winners for week two of TPPC 2014.

So don’t miss out—check our Photo Contest rules page for submission guidelines and schedules, and get to the Conservatory!
