Hong Kong Flower Show invites enrolment in photo competition
     Photography enthusiasts are invited to enter the "Blossoms of Love" 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). It aims to promote community greening with 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 2016 titleholders with beautiful garden displays as a background.
     The competition is divided into three categories. Category A, "Portrait of TVB Artistes and Miss Hong Kong", comprising Open and Student Sections, will hold its shooting session at 3.30pm on March 9 at Victoria Park. The shooting session will last about an hour.
     Entrants in Category A may enrol in person at any LCSD Leisure Link outlet on or before March 8, or by calling 2927 8080 on or before March 3. The maximum number of entrants is 1 000. Entrants will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Entry fees are $50 for the normal rate and $25 for students, senior citizens aged 60 or above and persons with disabilities.
     It is not necessary to apply in advance for Category B, "Flowers", and Category C, "Snapshots". However, entrants are required to pay admission fees for taking photographs at the showground during the show period. Photographs must be related to this year's Hong Kong Flower Show.
     All entries must be submitted by mail or in person by 6pm on April 11 to the Secretariat, Hong Kong Flower Show, 11/F, Leisure and Cultural Services Headquarters, 1-3 Pai Tau Street, Sha Tin.
