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 Eleven will be on display in the Autumn Garden until 20 December 2018.
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.
There are ten main categories on display this year including 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.
From the beauty of sunrise in the delicate ecosystem of the Brazilian cerrado to the misty morning light of the quintessential English garden of Great Dixter Gardens, the exhibition will take visitors on an inspirational journey through sights both familiar and unknown.
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 twelfth 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. The IGPOTY exhibition tours the UK and worldwide.
