From its vibrant colors to the delicate texture of its petals, focus on the natural allure of flowers.
A lot of bouquets will surely be given this February. Whether you'll be hiding one behind your back or will be at the receiving end of this sweet gesture, make sure to preserve the fleeting beauty of these blooms with your camera. And if you're lucky enough to have a garden of your own or live in a park nearby, we'd love to see the array of flowers growing in there, too!
Each participant may submit up to 10 photographs. This competition serves as the qualifying round for the Off the Grid Award.
