Congratulations to our 10 Firewise calendar photo contest winners! It was a hard choice; all of the photos showed great creativity! We received over 60 photos so we want to thank everyone who participated in the contest - we wish we could use them all!
Back in early February, NFPA asked photo enthusiasts to submit photographs of Firewise plants from around the country (and their own backyards). Winning entries would be used in the 2013 Firewise Calendar.
The calendar will serve as a resource for homeowners, landscapers, planners and others involved in home building and maintenance by highlighting a different plant, shrub or grass, along with its name, a description, growth pattern and area of origin from various regions across the country that can be used to both beautify a home’s landscape and help resist embers from a wildfire.
The 2013 Firewise Plant Calendar contest winners are (two photos were selected from a few of the entrants):
- Michieal Abe
- Ronald Billings
- Liron Galliano
- Jeannine Giuffre
- Mike Kuhns
- Audrey Lawson
- Kirsten Lints
- Jeffrey McFarland
- Richard Nelson
- Patricia Peters
Congratulations again to all the winners, who will receive Amazon gift cards as a prize!
Stay tuned for the final product later this year and be sure to order your free copy of the 2013 calendar through our catalog page!
