International Garden Photographer of the Year22nd March 2010 • Stephanie's Blog • Stephanie Donaldson
This competition is now in its fourth year and has a brand new format – ‘4 Seasons’ – four seasonal competitions, based on specific themes, which allows photographers to win cash prizes throughout the year. The theme of the spring four seasons competition (deadline 31st May 2010) is ‘Spring into Life’.
The competition provides a treasure trove of ideas and inspiration for both aspiring and expert photographers who are encouraged to enter, no matter what their level of experience. Exciting prizes include a top cash award of £5,000. Every entrant will benefit just from taking part with access to a series of workshops and talks, online critiques of their photographs on request, plus ‘top tips’ available as downloads from the website. The competition culminates in a stunning exhibition at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew – www.kew.org. Everyone who enters goes automatically through to the main International Garden Photographer of the Year competition with a closing date of 30th November 2010.
