Hong Kong Flower Show invites photo competition entries
**************************************************

     Photography enthusiasts are invited to enter the "Fairy Tales of Flowers" photo competition, which is held in conjunction with the annual spectacular Hong Kong Flower Show.

     The competition is jointly organised by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) and Television Broadcasts Limited (TVB) and sponsored by Shriro (HK) Ltd.

     Featuring Cineraria as this year's theme flower, the flower show will be held from March 19 to 28 at Victoria Park, from 9am to 9pm daily.

     The competition aims to promote community greening with impressive photographs of flowers and plants on display; interesting or touching scenes captured at the showground; and portraits of TVB artistes and Miss Hong Kong 2009 titleholders with beautiful garden displays as a background.

     The competition is divided into three categories. Category A, "Portrait of TVB Artistes and Miss Hong Kong", comprising Open and Student Sections, will hold its shooting session from 3.30pm to 4.30pm on March 18 at Victoria Park.

     Entrants in Category A may enrol in person at any LCSD Leisure Link Outlets between March 1 to 17, or by calling 2927 8080 between March 1 to 12. The maximum number of entrants is 1,000. Places will be allowed on a first-come-first-served basis. Entry fees are $30 for adults and $15 for students, senior citizens aged 60 or above, and people with disabilities.

     It is not necessary to apply in advance for Category B, "Flowers", and Category C, "Snapshots". However, entrants are required to pay admission fees for entering the showground during the show period. Photographs must be related to this year's Hong Kong Flower Show and taken at the showground during the show period.

     All entries must be submitted by mail or in person by 6pm on April 20 to the Secretariat, Hong Kong Flower Show, 11/F, Leisure and Cultural Services Headquarters, 1-3 Pai Tau Street, Sha Tin.

     In each category, there will be first, second, and third prizes and a number of commendations. Results of the competition will be announced in June on the LCSD website at http://www.lcsd.gov.hk. Winners will be notified in writing for collection of prizes.

     All winning entries will be put on display at Kowloon Park Arcade in June and July. Photos of the winning entries will also be uploaded onto the LCSD website at the same time.

     For details of the photo competition, please refer to the leaflets and entry forms available at the District Leisure Services Offices of LCSD, or visit LCSD website. For enquiries, please call 2601 8260.
