We would welcome other iris related photos which can be displayed alongside the competition, these would not be judged.
Choose a photo of an iris that you have grown that fits one of the classes above.
Three different irises can be entered for each class. For classes 1 to 3, please send a photo of the whole stem and a closer one showing one of the blooms on the stem, unless these features can be clearly seen in one photo. Please do not use Photoshop, but cropping of an image is allowed. Photos must be taken during the 2023 flowering season, up to 1st October 2023. Also, photos of entries to ‘live’ BIS shows are not permitted. Please note this rule does not apply to classes 4 or 5.
Give the name of the varieties you are entering, unless they are seedlings. Send your entries to email@example.com by the 1st October 2023. Entries will be numbered so that they are anonymous when they are judged. After that date, we will ask our BIS judges to make their choices.
We would like to use any photos submitted for publicity purposes, e.g. Newsletter, Yearbook or Facebook. Please let us know if you are not happy with that.
