The fifth International Garden Photographer of the Year competition is now calling for entries for its ‘Weather Eye’ themed 4Seasons category.
Deadline 31st August 2011
The 4Seasons summer category theme for this year is ‘Weather Eye’ – a theme designed to encourage photographers to explore the different aspects of weather that are essential for plant growth. The weather can also be instrumental in creating a unique photograph – making the difference between an ordinary picture and something truly extraordinary!
Whatever the weather, where ever you are, IGPOTY judges are looking for photographs that have special atmosphere and depth enhanced by your interpretation of the theme ‘Weather Eye’.
The winner of the 4Seasons category wins a cash prize of £500 and a copy of the latest IGPOTY book, ‘International Garden Photographer of the Year Collection 04’ (published in May 2011). Entries cost £10 for 4 images and can be made online at www.igpoty.com. All entries made to the 4Seasons categories will be automatically entered into the main IGPOTY competition.
