Photographer Malak Karsh brought international fame to Ottawa with his photos of the NCC tulip beds.  His stunning pictures became a springtime ritual in newspapers and magazines nationwide and around the world. And, it was Malak who inspired the Ottawa Board of Trade to establish the Canadian Tulip Festival in 1952. As an hommage to Malak Karsh, on its 65th Anniversary, the Canadian Tulip Festival  is inviting photographers to submit their own tulip photos and a jury will select 65 for display in the Lansdowne ParkTulip Gallery.  Pictures need to be framed or mounted ready for hanging with maximum size of 36/36in .
