It's your last chance to enter the IGPOTY's macro project, which closes on 30 June.
There’s a £500 cash prize for the winner, plus the opportunity for their image to be featured in the IGPOTY book and also the exhibition, which tours the UK and worldwide including Royal Botanic Gardens Kew, plus venues across Europe and venues as far afield as Sydney, Australia.
"Macro lenses have become so accurate in recent years that they have opened up a new miniature world for many photographers to explore", said IGPOTY CEO, Philip Smith. "But it is not just about getting in close for its own sake; we are looking for artistic images that reveal the inner life of plants, that expand our awareness and propel us into new realms of the imagination. Technique is important here; make sure you are in control of your focus and use depth of field for maximum and intentional creative effect."
