Second Annual Gardens Photo Contest

carefreephotocontestBy Lyn Hitchons ~ The Town of Carefree is sponsoring the 2013 Carefree Desert Gardens Photo Contest featuring the beautiful downtown gardens, donated by Desert Foothills Landscape. The 4 acre garden on Easy Street contains spectacular and rare plants. All photos must include the garden but may include other features in the surrounding environment. Winning entries will be part of a 2014 calendar. The contest entry period runs from January2-  February 2, 2013. The deadline for entries is February 2, 2013.


Joe Corpora and I co-chaired the Carefree Desert Gardens Photo Contest last spring. Many gorgeous photos were submitted and a 2013 calendar was created using some of the photos. Calendars are for sale at Carefree Town Hall, located at 8 Sundial Circle. The cost is $15 plus tax. Proceeds go to the Town Marketing Fund, dedicated to making more people aware of what Carefree has to offer. To get inspired, view last year’s photos at

So grab your camera, visit the gardens and then enter your favorite shots!
