#EmpressUs! Photo Contest
Share Your Love of the Empress
At World Tree, our farmers are the heroes of our story. This year we want to take a moment to honor and showcase you and the wonderful work you do with our trees. We are hosting a photo contest to put you in the spotlight at World Tree. We have fun categories for you to submit pictures of yourself, your team, your trees, and your land in all their glory. We will feature the photos on our website, in social media and print publications.
Please submit all photos by end of day Wednesday July 15th, using the online submission form.
Look through the photos you already have or go out to get the best shot you can today. Please ensure they are:
- In focus and as high resolution as you can get on your camera or phone
- Landscape orientation (wider than they are tall)
- Either JP or PNG format
All photos must be original work, taken by the entrants. No third party may own or control any materials the photo contains, and the photo must not infringe upon the trademark, copyright, moral rights, intellectual rights, or rights of privacy of any entity or person. The photo must be in its original state and cannot be altered in any way, including but not limited to removing, adding, reversing, or distorting subjects within the frame. Violators will be removed from the contest.
Copyright and Usage Rights
You must accept that the photos submitted to the competition may be used by World Tree, without prior communication, in publications, advertisements and online. World Tree has the non-exclusive right to use the photos. Photos that contain images of people must include permission from them.
You will be asked to include your name, email address, phone number, title of the photo, age of the trees, location, the category to add the photo to and confirm you understand the permission rules.

Once our submission deadline of July 15th is reached, we will open the gallery for voting. Share photo voting links to get your friends and family voting for your pictures! Photos in each category will be long-listed in a peer voting system and World Tree will have final say on the winners in each category. We also reserve the right to not select the same winner for more than one category. We will also select one overall Blue-Ribbon photo.
Stay tuned on how to get the word out!
The winning photos will be announced in early September either via email or potentially we will be able to hold an in-person BBQ event (COVID-19 safety dependent).
Winning photos will be featured on our website, social media and in print publications.
First place in each category will receive a gift certificate for a dinner out on us!
The Blue-Ribbon Photo will receive a Visa Gift Card.
