RHS Photographic Competition Celebrates National Poinsettia Day: PoinsettiaThe RHS is calling on amateur and professional photographers to celebrate National Poinsettia Day today capturing the beauty of Britain’s favourite Christmas plants on camera and entering the free annual RHS Photographic Competition.

Commenting on the competition, the RHS said: "Vibrant shots of brightly coloured leaves could make compelling entries in this year’s RHS Photographic Competition, with close-ups suitable for the Abstract and Detail category, while images of the plants against an urban environment backdrop could be entered in the Greening Grey Britain category or shared on social media category with the hashtag #RHSPhotoComp."

Cash prizes will be awarded to first, second and third places in each category from an increased overall prize fund of £10,000. In addition, the winner of each adult category will receive a year’s membership to the RHS.

Entries can be submitted online until 28 February 2017.
