International Garden Photographer of the Year
Distributed for Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew
Going beyond gardens, the photographs also include a myriad of outdoor spaces and sizes, from expansive desert vistas to a solitary bud. Bright cranberry fields in Massachusetts appear alongside stoic, black-and-white trees in Italy, with professionals and novices sharing the spotlight in this exquisite compilation. This year's grand-prize winner is an amateur from Bricherasio, so photographers of all levels can find inspiration and guidance in these pages.
Following the theme of images of a green planet, this year’s nine categories included “The Beauty of Plants,” “Beautiful Gardens,” “Wildlife in the Garden,” “Breathing Spaces,” “Bountiful Earth,” “Trees Woods Forests,” “Wildflower Landscapes,” “Greening the City,” and “Photo Projects,” plus a special Young Garden Photographer of the Year award.
A traveling exhibit will make stops in London, Edinburgh, Sydney, Nuremburg, and Lisbon, with more cities to come. But for those who want to bring a bookshelf-friendly bit of greenery into their homes, International Garden Photographer of the Year is the perfect fit.
