Milwaukee, Wisconsin (PRWEB) August 16, 2011
Holland Bulb Farms, a leading online flower bulb retailer, recently began accepting entries into its first ever iMyGarden $1000 Design Challenge. This challenge, which began on Monday, August 15th and runs until Sunday, September 18th, encourages iPhone, iPod, and iPad users to develop their best, most creative garden design using the recently released iMyGarden app, whose slogan is "Dream. Design. Dig.". A recent update to this app contains an option to automatically upload a design directly to the challenge. Each participant is allowed one entry into the challenge, that being the most recently uploaded design by the participant. One first, one second, two third, and ten honorable mention prizes will be awarded in differing amounts of regularly-priced merchandise from Holland Bulb Farms contained in the garden design submitted. This includes all fall planted flower bulbs, such as tulips, daffodils, hyacinth, allium, and more. These merchandise prizes are in the amounts of $1000 for the first place winner, $500 for the second place winner, $250 for the third place winners, and $25 for the honorable mention winners. All of the submitted designs will be reviewed and judged by a panel of three horticulturalists. This panel will include Melinda Myers, a well-known expert gardener and author of more than 20 books on various gardening topics. These winners will be announced on Tuesday, October 4th, 2011.
In this technological society of “electronically-minded individuals”, the use of these iOS devices is on the rise. Therefore, the creators of the iMyGarden app felt it was time for their app users to demonstrate their garden design skills. The designs submitted by various participants can then be viewed on the iMyGarden facebook page by all visitors to the page. Jon Studer, the main founder of iMyGarden and challenge developer, says, “It is our goal to create an online community of ‘tech-saavy’ gardeners by allowing them to share their designs with fellow app users and give them a chance to win the bulbs they wish to plant in their gardens this fall at the same time!”
A list of complete and official rules can be found on the iMyGarden website.
