The public votes for winners online!

​Gardens can greatly enhance a bungalow's architecture, and we want to celebrate yours in our Annual Bungalow Garden Contest!


Created in 2017 by the Chicago Bungalow Association, the Garden Contest is our annual competition where the public votes for winners online in each of 3 categories: Front Garden, Rear/Side Garden, or Window/Planter Boxes. Show off your garden for a chance to win a $250 cash prize, website recognition and other fun garden-related prizes from our partners!​

Nominations for the 2019 Bungalow Garden Contest are now closed. Subscribe to our email list to receive an email when the nomination form is posted. In the meantime, get inspired by exploring all 2019 winning gardens in our Garden Contest Gallery: 

All About the Contest​

How it Works

  • Must be a CBA-certified Chicago bungalow and member of CBA to compete.

  • Submit the nomination form below (NOTE: nomination form is closed until next season).

    • Choose a category to compete in: Front Garden, Rear/Side Garden, or Window/Planter Boxes. (Yes, you may compete in more than one category!)

    • Upload up to 10 photos for each category you compete in. TIP: Close-ups of plants are nice, but be sure to include photos showing a view of your whole garden with your bungalow visible too!

  • ​Because we receive so many submissions, the Chicago Bungalow Association will choose by staff vote the top 10 submissions in each category to be included on the public online ballot.

  • The public will then vote for the winners online. Tell your neighbors and friends to vote for your garden!

  • This is in large part a social media contest, so follow us and look for #BungalowGardenContest to get the latest updates about contest submissions, voting, and winners​:


  • $250 cash prize

  • A feature on our website including a garden walk-through video

  • Other garden-related prizes from participating partners.
