Rome's roses are the subject of an Instagram photo competition.
Rome is holding the second edition of a photographic contest on Instagram in search of the city's most beautiful rose.
The #PremioRoma2019 competition is open to residents of Rome, aged over 18, under the theme Petali di Roma (Petals of Rome).
The photograph contest coincides with the 77th edition of the prestigious Premio Roma rose competition at the Roseto di Roma, the city's rose garden.
The city says that the aim is to create a "virtual rose garden" and that the flowers can be photographed "everywhere, in different contexts, in a garden, on the balcony of the house, in a flowerpot or cut."
To enter the contest, photographers must post an image depicting one or more roses, with the text containing the hastags: # PremioRoma2019 and #Roma, tagging the Roma Capitale page.
Images can be published until midnight on 12 May, with a panel of judges selecting the best five, taking into account also the number of "likes" obtained.
The winners will receive an invitation to the Premio Roma award ceremony on 18 May, at the Aranciera di S. Sisto, where their photographs will be on display.
The winning images will also be shared by the city on its social media channels. For more details see Facebook page.
