     The competition is jointly organised by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) and Television Broadcasts Limited (TVB). It aims to promote the awareness of 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 2018 titleholders with gorgeous 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 14 at Victoria Park. The shooting session will last about an hour.

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.
