Like many of us, can you also not resist taking photographs of flowers? We are therefore inviting you to share your own joy of spring with us and the world?
There is nothing more welcoming than the colour and sweet scent of spring after the dark winter. What a source of inspiration! Think of the bulb fields which ooze colour, a vase of fresh flowers on the table, bulb growers working in the fields or photos of the parade which blast from the past.
This year Bloemencorso Bollenstreek is therefore organising a photographic competition with entries in four categories. Judging will take place by a professional jury and there are of course prizes to be won.
- The winning entries will be published on all Bloemencorso Bollenstreek’s media platforms both online and offline. Our parade has worldwide coverage.
- The winning images will be honoured in the exhibition "75 years of Bloemencorso Bollenstreek" which we will be holding in 2022
All submitted content may be used by Bloemencorso Bollenstreek both online and offline.
We have assembled professional judging panels for each of the categories.
1. (Semi) Professional
This category is especially for (semi) professionals. The judges expect to see high quality images with a creative or unique angle. How this is achieved is of course up to the photographer,but the image should fit within the framework of the parade and the joys of spring. Get that photographic eye working!
Deze categorie is speciaal voor de jeugd tot 14 jaar. Dat je geen professioneel fotograaf meer hoeft te zijn om mooie foto’s te kunnen maken, is met de komst van smartphones en social media wel duidelijk geworden. Maar een mooie foto maken is nog wel altijd een kunst an sich. Voorjaarskriebels zijn voor jong en oud!
This category is for those who have photographs from the past tucked away somewhere at home. Think special moments, well-known floats and personal memories. If possible, we would like to see images from (way) before 1999. We can’t wait to behold your hidden gems.
4. Social influencers
This category is for the photographer with a following of (digital) photo fans? Are you ready to get creative? Let spring shine through your (telephone) lens, assemble the most likes on social media and maybe you will be the first Bloemencorso Bollenstreek influencer.
THE MOST SPECTACULAR SPRING FESTIVAL IN THE NETHERLANDS
The Bloemencorso of the Bollenstreek is the largest spring festival in The Netherlands. This colourful, fragrant spectacle is celebrated annually during one week of the year by more than one million visitors. The main highlight of the event is the parade on Saturday when the colourful floats and the luxury vehicles decorated in masses of flowers travel the 42 km route. The addition of cheerful music from the marching bands and amusement on and around the floats all contribute to the excitement of the event as experienced by the stream of visitors from home and abroad.
