All judging will be by Lydia Strutton AAPS, AFIAP who also judged in 2018

Last year, Lydia made the following general comments:
"I must again thank the Lilium Society for the privilege of judging their annual photographic competition for 2018. Having judged the images last year, I found it heartening to see a marked improvement in this year's collection - it appears comments made last year have been some help. It also makes it more difficult to pick a winner this time around! Hopefully any negative comments made about individual images in this collection will again be taken in the spirit of how it is given - constructive - to the point where improvements can be made. I find the triptych series of photographs, an ideal way of displaying the beauty of bulb flowering plants and uplifting and rewarding for the photographers who can capture that vitality. Triptychs make for ideal framing and display on the walls of all bulb loving gardeners - make it happen and enjoy the fruits of your labours!"
