Annual Lavender Northwest Photo Contest

Capture the Magic of Lavender in the Pacific Northwest.

We invite photographers to capture the allure of lavender bursting into color in the lavender fields throughout Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Montana The many moods, colors and varieties of lavender, and the interesting backgrounds found at LNW lavender destinations, provide intriguing subjects for the professional as well as the amateur photographer. Many of the lavender destinations are open to photographers during the lavender bloom season from mid-June through August. The deadline for submitting photos is August 1st each year.

Applicants are required to submit their photos electronically with their application. The photos will be reviewed by professionals for appropriateness, after which finalists will be notified. Lavender Northwest may use digital copies of the photographs to promote lavender as an agri-business in the Pacific Northwest.

Prizes Include:
$100 first place
$50 second place
$25 for third and fourth place

Some entries may appear in LNW publications including posters, maps, brochures, on our website and in other advertising materials which are circulated throughout the Pacific Northwest. Our advertising reach is extensive.

As you tour farms this year, bring your camera and take advantage of the many photo opportunities you will find, then submit your favorite ones to share.
