Andrew Lawson, Judge and Director of the Garden Photographer of the Year said, “We're delighted to have such stunning prizes and we're particularly pleased to be able to reward the sustained work of portfolios as well as single images. The prize fund of over £12,000 recognises flower and garden photography as the equal of landscape, travel and natural history photography, which already have their own competitions. The workshops and potential to progress your own photography is truly imaginative and exciting".
