ANNOUNCING THE 2ND ANNUAL BOTANICALITY TUMBLR SPRING BOTANICAL ART SHOW!
The 2nd annual Botanicality Tumblr Spring Botanical Art Show is the opportunity to expose amateur and professional artists working in contemporary visual arts to a wider digital audience. This exhibition is a showcase meant to highlight the Spring botanical experience in 2-D mediums. Submitted art should relate to the theme of Spring botanical experience.
All tumblr users are eligible to submit up to (2) original works of art in five categories: (1) painting, (2) drawing/sketching, (3) digital painting, drawing, or sketching, (4) photography, and (5) mixed media
The judging of each category will be based upon likes and reblogs. Each active tumblr user may vote for their favorite art pieces by clicking like or reblog on the original art post at http://botanicality.tumblr.com.

The entries receiving the most combined likes and reblogs will win first prize in their category and compete for Best of Show
