The Original Garden Visitor's Guide

International Garden Photographer of the Year

International Garden Photographer of the Year returns to Cambridge University Botanic Garden, 1 November – 21 December 2017.

Cambridge University Botanic Garden is delighted to host the prestigious International Garden Photographer of the Year (IGPOTY) exhibition. A collection of winning images from its 10 Year Anniversary Exhibition will be on display in the Autumn Garden.

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.
Eight main categories including The Beauty of Plants, Wildflower Landscapes, Beautiful Gardens and Breathing Spaces will be on display, plus winners from the Macro Art Photo Project.

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 a rare lone orchid in the Hengduan Mountain Range in China to an atmospheric sunrise in the Peak District, the exhibition will take visitors on an inspirational journey through sights both familiar and unknown.

This year’s exhibition will be even bigger for a truly immersive experience, featuring the 12 panel IGPOTY outdoor exhibition structure, with each panel measuring 1.8m x 1.8m.
