The Conservation Conference will include botanical art and photography exhibits showcasing the beauty and fostering a greater appreciation of our native plants. Artists are invited to submit original works for the shows and contests!
All artists are invited to enter original artwork in any two-dimensional medium that reflects the beauty and uniqueness of California flora and adheres to high standards of botanical accuracy. All entries must depict plants indigenous to California. The botanical art show will be selected by jury and hung for the duration of the conference. Winners of the contest will receive cash prizes and publication in the CNPS journal, Fremontia.
Full details on submitting artwork will be available soon.
Photos must be taken in California (or the California Floristic Provence, including Northern Baja California, Mexico) and feature plants native to the state. Images may be species-specific macro shots, wide-angle landscape photos, or pictures of people or animals interacting with the natural environment of California. Subjects may include, but are not limited to, rare or common plants, flowers, trees, shrubs, vines, grasses, bryophytes – surprise us! The show will be selected by public vote on the CNPS Facebook page and hung for the duration of the conference. Winners of the contest will be determined by a panel of judges, and will receive cash prizes and publication in the CNPS journal, Fremontia.
Full details on submitting photos will be available soon.
