The summer of 2023 brought a burst of creativity within the UC Master Gardener Program, as volunteers across California have submitted their best shots to this year's Photo Contest. The photo contest offered a fun opportunity for UC Master Gardeners to showcase their photography skills and gardening adventures.
This year's submissions have been truly spectacular! They've unveiled vibrant harvests, comedic garden mishaps, backyard visitors, and a trove of other gardening memories that encapsulate the rewarding nature of gardening.
Now, it's time for you to play a part. After careful selection of 20 finalists for each category, we ask you to vote and help us select the winners.

Once you've chosen those photos that catch your eye, spread the word on social media and encourage your friends and family to cast their votes!
We are extremely grateful to each participant for sharing their artistry and garden with us. Congratulations and good luck to each semi-finalist, and let the voting begin! Voting closes Friday, September 15 at 12 p.m. PST, so make sure to cast your vote before then. (Finalists are listed below in no specific order.)
