Photography enthusiasts are invited to enter the "Floral Delights" photo competition, which is to be held in conjunction with the annual spectacular Hong Kong Flower Show in March.
The competition is jointly organised by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) and Television Broadcasts Limited (TVB) and sponsored by Shriro (H.K.) Ltd.
Featuring the hyacinth as this year's theme flower and the main theme "Floral Delights", the flower show will take place from March 16 to 25 at Victoria Park, and from 9am to 9pm daily.
The photo competition aims to promote community greening and is seeking 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 2011 titleholders with beautiful garden displays as a background.
The competition is divided into three categories. Category A, which is titled "Portrait of TVB Artistes and Miss Hong Kong", comprises Open and Student Sections and will hold its shooting session from 3.30pm to 4.30pm on March 15 at Victoria Park.
Entrants in Category A may enrol in person at any LCSD Leisure Link Outlets on or before March 14, or by calling 2927 8080 on or before March 9. The maximum number of entrants is 1,000. Entrants will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Entry fees are $30 for normal rate and $15 for students, senior citizens aged 60 or above, and persons with disabilities.
It is not necessary to apply in advance for Category B, which is titled "Flowers", or 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 17 to the Secretariat, Hong Kong Flower Show, 11/F, Leisure and Cultural Services Headquarters, 1-3 Pai Tau Street, Sha Tin.
