by Jonah Holland, Public Relations & Marketing Coordinator, Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden
Congratulations to Toni Page who is our Grand Prize #GardenFest Instagram contest winner with this photo of her daughter Noelle enjoying Dominion GardenFest of Lights. We were thrilled with the participation in this year’s Instagram contest! We had over 1,600 entries, nearly 900 more than last year. The photo submissions told a wide variety of GardenFest stories (check out the collages below to see some of our favorites). There were so many fabulous and creative photos that it was truly difficult to choose our winners. Thanks to everyone who participated.
When choosing our favorites, we looked at creativity, fun and photographic composition. Toni Page wins a prize package at over $600 including a membership to Science Museum of Virginia, tickets to Richmond Ballet’s Don Quixote, tickets to see the Richmond Symphony, plus passes to the Garden for 11 friends.
Congratulations also to the runners up visitor Ann Van Rheenen and……
Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden visitor services staffer, Laura Flornoy. Each runner-up won 4 passes to come back to the Garden later this year with friends.
