2009 Palm Springs International Rose Photography Show

The Desert Rose Society of the Palm Springs, California, area is sponsoring a very exciting rose photography show this coming November. Judging will take place on the evening of November 12, and the show will be open to the public on November 13 and 14.

Entries are invited from around the world, and entrants do not have to be members of any rose society. In other words, it is open to anyone, anywhere, who likes both roses and photography. The entry fee is $20.00 US.

The complete schedule is here, along with rules, registration form, etc.

Note that entries may be mailed in, with a deadline for receipt of two weeks before the show. Prints may also be entered, with prior reservations, on the morning of November 12. Entered prints will become the property of the Desert Rose Society and will not be returned, but the photographer otherwise retains full rights in the submitted photos.

The rose photography show will be held at the same time as the American Rose Society Fall Convention and Rose Show, also sponsored by the Desert Rose Society. Complete information about that can be found at www.desertrosesociety.com
