By submitting images to the EHS, including entries to EHS competitions, the photographer provides the EHS with full usage rights for all images submitted. Copyright remains with the photographer.
By providing a photographic or other image to the EHS, you warrant that you are the copyright owner of the image or have been given the rights to use and share the image and are granting the EHS the right to publish the image(s) in the Gardener’s Gate and on the EHS web site, and use them at any EHS exhibition, promotional or educational event in perpetuity. Usage includes the right to make minor modifications, such as post-processing adjustments, minor cropping or fading for a particular purpose, but that do not result in a substantive change to the image.
Other than these specific usage rights, the copyright in the photograph or other image remains with the copyright holder and these images can not be copied or appropriated by any other person. Downloading these images for uses other than the above, without the express consent of the copyright holder constitutes copyright infringement.
The EHS maintains a library of images with a view to making the best images from EHS history available to view in a series of galleries. Galleries are in constant preparation, so check back periodically if you are interested in great flower and garden photos or the activities of the EHS.
Some images in the library go back several decades, both prints and slides. They are currently being catalogued, with the best to be digitized at a later date. As these older images become available they will likely be included in our online galleries for your enjoyment. In the meantime, enjoy the more recent photos from our archives.
In addition to our own galleries, from time to time, we ask EHS members to share their photos of the gardening year. For example, the first blooms of spring or the results of the hail storm in July of 2012. These galleries are found in the Other Galleries list.
