International Garden Photographer of the Year is pleased to announce the continuation of its special award in partnership with Parques Sintra, Portugal. The award celebrates the rich botanical heritage of Parques de Sintra’s world heritage sites south of Lisbon.

Cash prizes amounting to €500 are on offer for the best photograph taken within one of the Parques de Sintra sites. Three of the winning photographs will be displayed next year at a special International Garden Photographer of the Year exhibition at Monserrate Palace.

The overall winner will also participate in International Garden Photographer of the Year exhibitions, with shows in Kew Gardens, London, Australia and Germany.

How to enter: photographers may enter any of the categories of International Garden Photographer of the Year- so the photograph may be a garden view, a single plant, wildlife, or people. When entering a photograph, simply include the words ‘Parques de Sintra’ in the caption or title of the photograph. The International Garden Photographer of the Year judging panel will select the best three photographs for the awards.
