The Royal Horticultural Society have announce their 2003 competition. The aim of the competition is to convey the diversity of plants and the enjoyment of gardening through the medium of photography. It has already had over 1000 inquiries making it the busiest start to the competition since its launch in 1998. Last year brought in just over 3000 entries.
The competition is open to amateur and professional photographers (judged separately) and the closing date is 15 August 2003. Winning photos will be exhibited at the RHS London Flower Show 7 -8 October 2003.

There are six categories split into professional and amateur including:
Garden Photograph of the Year (private)
Garden Photograph of the Year (public)
Tree or Shrub Photograph of the Year
Plant or Flower Photograph of the Year
Wildlife in the Garden Photograph of the Year
People in the Garden Photograph of the Year

Previous amateur winning entries have ranged from the suburban back garden complete with washing line to the dramatic avenue of trees. Judges have seen children playing in a wildflower meadow and close up shots of flowers and leaves.

Marianne Majerus, Garden Photograph of the Year 2002 and one of this year's judges said; " I am already looking forward to judging this year's competition, particularly after last year's high standard of amateur entries. I am looking forward to seeing weird and wonderful creatures in the new 'Wildlife in the Garden Photograph of the Year' category as well as the beautiful images we receive of plants and gardens."

The prize is a range of engraved Darlington Crystal with three prizes in each category along with a top prize of £1000 for the best overall photo.

Cost of entry is £4 for RHS members and £5 for non-members. Phone 01805 624067 or send a SAE to RHS Garden Rosemoor, Great Torrington, Devon EX38 8PH to request an entry form. Good luck!
