Veggie Chompers 2021 Garden PHOTO RALLY : come join the fun!



Are you ready for something fun?  I hope you are, because I'm counting on you to participate!!

The gardening season always goes by so fast, so I thought of something FUN we could do this year to capture cherishable moments in our garden.  If you've ever heard of a photo rally before, this is what I'm talking about! 

A photo rally is an event where participants have a list of pictures to take.  They then submit their pictures, before the set deadline, for the other participants to enjoy.  You might be asked, for exemple, to take a picture of a certain thing, or a picture of you in a situation or with something.  The participants submitting the most items will have a chance to win the grand prize.


OFFICIAL RULES

Who can participate : Everybody
How to enter : Join Veggie Chompers 2021 Garden PHOTO RALLY Facebook Group.  Post an album of your pictures before the deadline.
Deadline : September 30th 2021, 11:59pm Eastern Daylight Time
Winner : Every participant submitting the 30 items or more will be admissible to win the grand prize.  The winner will be determined by a random draw. 
Grand Prize : Gift certificat of 50$ at Baker Creek
Participation prizes : 35 small prizes for artistic creations
Winner announcement : The winners will be announced on YouTube.  I will also go through the items on the list and show my favorite pic from all of your submissions.  Thoses will have a chance to win a participation prize.

How does it work :
