Default Photo Contest - January '09

OK, folks, here's a slightly different take on a contest for you....

Submit your most stunning banana photograph to this thread, with a comment line stating cultivar or species. One entry per person, and I reserve the right to ask you for a high-res version of the photo, and your name.

There will be four winners of the January Photo Contest, and these lucky people will have their photographs published in the January issues of the new magazine Bananas Quarterly, which will be published by the International Banana Society.

The contest will be open for submissions until 31 January 2009, at 11:59 pm Ecuador Time. The four winners will be announced in the first week of February, and published in the flagship issue of the magazine.

EDIT: THIS CONTEST IS NOW OFFICIALLY CLOSED, IT BEING FEBRUARY 1 AND ALL.

GO!

Stumpy - the best Banana photo you have in your collection. Subscription details and whatnot are up to Jarred; I think we're waiting until this issue is close to complete to solicit the subscriptions. I can tell you that at this point, a year of Bananas Quarterly will cost $20.

Default Re: Photo Contest - January '09

here is the best photo i have ever taken:

these two lovely bananas that im trying to grow in this picture are of the species "musa chiquita de walmart".

this is what happens when you water, feed and provide great sunshine:

planted in the ground: dwarf cavadish-fore ground- left, musella lateria- middle, dwarf cavadish- back left, along the back fence going to the right are 2 basjoos.: potted front to back against the wall: hcm, musa zebrina, goldfinger, and musella.

who says you have to have a green thumb to grow bananas....i prefer a yellow thumb!
