RESULTS ANNOUNCED FOR THE INTERNATIONAL GARDEN PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE YEAR’S
WINTER ‘4 SEASONS’ COMPETITION 2010

The first winter ‘4 seasons’ competition was a huge success and attracted a range of impressive entries with its theme ‘Winter Beauty’.

The ‘4 seasons’ competition is supported by Landscape Juice (www.landscapejuice.com).

The winners are Tom Wundrak, Elspeth Briscoe and Anthony Beck. The overall winner receives a £500 cash prize and all the finalists will receive a copy of ‘International Garden Photographer of the Year Collection 03’ published by David and Charles (http://www.rubooks.co.uk). They have also been awarded points which will be taken through to the judging of the main competition which finishes on 30th November 2010.

Organiser, Philip Smith, said:

“We had a fascinating selection of images submitted from all over the world.  As always, the judges look for that ‘extra dimension’ and we feel that all of the finalists achieved that. We are delighted that the new seasonal category has proved so popular with keen photographers. They were all singled out variously for their simplicity, exuberance, light quality and originality.”

The images can be seen at:

The second ‘4 Seasons’ competition is on the theme of ‘Spring into Life’ with a closing date of May 31st. For more details on the other seasonal themes and deadlines visit the website – www.igpoty.com

For inspirational ideas why not visit the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and enjoy the diversity of over 5 million bulbs blooming?  Flooding the open spaces of Kew Gardens with three months of flowering splendour, the swathes of crocuses, snowdrops, daffodils, rhododendrons and azaleas are set to be a riot of colour.
