With your participation, every month, we will publish a Stone of the Month. Send us your photos and stories that teach, inform, entertain and inspire! The photo will be accompanied by short story describing some aspect of the subject; how the tree or stone was collected or acquired; who styled the tree or carved the base; a story about the pot and trays or the artist that created them; a short monograph on the species or geological material.
You can make the story as personal as you like, but try to make it interesting and informative. You can also add a link to your website, blog or Facebook page if you like. Featured photos must be in color, in focus on a neutral background, about 1000 pixels wide. If appropriate or necessary, additional photos showing a process or a “before and after” can also be submitted.
Both the story and photo will be considered when selecting the finalists. Every member and club is eligible to participate. All levels of expertise are welcome whether you are a novice, an experienced hobbyist or a professional. Trees and stones to be featured each month will be selected by the BCI Editorial Committee.
This is a great opportunity to share your trees, stones and stories with your fellow club members around the world and inspire everyone who visits the website.
