Winners Announced for 2020 Photo Contest
With nearly 700 entries, the 2020 ADS Photo Contest is an archive of our favorite flower and our lives this unusual year. The large number of entries was a bit challenging. How do you chose the top four out of 182 entries in class 2? Trevor Hoff’s photo exemplifies the category: Sandia Melody is a portrait of a dahlia, not just a photo.
Erik Dixon’s picture of Stella and Rowan imparts peace during this tumultuous time. Deborah Dietz’s winning photo “Freedom” features John Phan in the Dahlia Dell at Golden Gate Park, San Francisco. It captures how I felt working on my dahlia farm.
A heartfelt thank you to everyone for sharing their dahlias, family, and friends.
Enjoy the winning photos in a gallery!
