International Garden Photographer of the Year

Sub heading


A selection of inspiring entries into the International Garden Photographer of the Year (IGPOTY) 2018 competition will be displayed in an exhibition at the Stockwood Discovery Centre.

With stunning work from both amateur and professional photographers, the exhibition captures beautiful images of:

  • plants
  • habitats
  • amazing landscapes

The opening exhibition takes place annually at Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, with a rolling programme of touring exhibitions in the UK and in countries worldwide.

Now in its eleventh year, IGPOTY was started by a group of professional garden photographers and has quickly grown to become the world's premier competition and exhibition specialising in the photography of:

  • garden
  • plant
  • flower
  • botanical

Founder, Philip Smith said "Garden photography is an emerging genre. Using a garden as an outdoor studio all photographers of any age and at any skill level can develop their artistic life. Garden photography encompasses many aspects of other types of image-making - you can create mini-landscapes, stalk and photograph all kinds of wildlife - or you can make your flowers look like Hollywood starlets".

IGOTY is wholly owned and organised by Garden World Images Ltd and it is run in association with the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.
