Exhibition of flower show winning photos opens (with photos)

     Winning entries in the "Blossoms of Love" photo competition of the annual Hong Kong Flower Show, which was held in March at Victoria Park, are on display in the Kowloon Park Arcade from today (June 15) until July 15, from 7am to 11pm daily. Admission to the exhibition is free.
     The photo competition, jointly organised by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) and Television Broadcasts Limited (TVB), was one of the show's major fringe activities to promote community greening.
     The competition was divided into three categories - Category A: Portrait of TVB Artistes and Miss Hong Kong (Open Section and Student Section); Category B: Flowers; and Category C: Snapshots.
     This year, the competition received over 5 700 entries including photographs of beautiful flowers and plants, pictures of interesting features, and portraits of artistes from TVB and Miss Hong Kong 2016 titleholders posing in the garden displays.
     The winning entries have also been uploaded to the LCSD webpage at www.lcsd.gov.hk/en/hkfs/2017/photo_rs.php. For enquiries, please call 2601 8260.
     Organised by the LCSD, this year's flower show was one of the events celebrating the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust supported the flower show for the fifth consecutive year, and has been its Major Sponsor since 2014. The photo competition was sponsored by Tamron Industries (Hong Kong) Limited and Manfrotto Distribution HK Limited.
