International Garden Photographer of the Year at the Garden
Cambridge University Botanic Garden is delighted to host the prestigious International Garden Photographer of the Year (IGPOTY) exhibition.
A collection of winning images from Exhibition Twelve will be on display in the Autumn Garden until 19 December 2019.
The exhibition will feature the very best botanical photography from across the world, celebrating the beauty and importance of plant life in its many diverse forms.
The categories on display this year include The Beauty of Plants, Wildflower Landscapes, Beautiful Gardens and Greening the City, as well as photo projects such as still life and macro art.
Visitors can expect to see thought-provoking and challenging images which seek to bring people closer to plants and gardens, increase public understanding of the natural world and champion photography as a mode of conservation.
“We are proud to return to Cambridge University’s Botanic Garden with exhibition 12. It is a pleasure to work with the team and an honour to present a selection of winning works to the people of Cambridge. I am sure this year’s selection will enchant visitors.” said Tyrone McGlinchey, Head Judge IGPOTY
The exhibition features the 12 panel IGPOTY outdoor exhibition structure, with each panel measuring 1.8m x 1.8m set up in the Autumn Garden.
IGPOTY – now in its thirteenth year – continues to be the world’s most prestigious competition and exhibition for garden, plant and botanical photography with entries from around the world – open to all ages, amateurs and professionals alike, with a Young Garden Photographer of the Year award for under 17s.
