International Garden Photographer of the Year has announced a photographic partnership with the National Trust – which will create a brand new award category for the 2011 competition launching on 1st March.
The new category will be called ‘Breathing Spaces’ and judges will be looking for photographs which capture the spirit of outdoor places – whether those are gardens or countryside landscapes. The category will be a celebration of the natural world as a place for people to relax, have fun and find inspiration.
International Garden Photographer of the Year is organised in association with the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and the winning images will be shown in exhibitions during 2011 and 2012.
In conjunction with IGPOTY, The National Trust is welcoming photographers into their gardens and estates – and all images, whether shot within National Trust grounds and properties or anywhere else in the world, are eligible for the competition.
