International Garden Photographer of the Year Exhibition

Wed 8 July - Tue 25 August

Cambridge University Botanic Garden

IGPOTY is supported by the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, where the main exhibition is held annually before touring around the UK and the world.
This year’s exhibition includes stunning images from nine main categories, including favourites such as ‘The Beauty of Plants’, ‘Beautiful Gardens’ and ‘Abstract Views’, and brand new category ‘Plants & Planet’ – where a portion of the entry fees were donated to WeForest to plant new trees. In addition there are also four photo projects which took place throughout the year including the new ‘Square
Crop’ competition.
The exhibition will be in a new location in the centre of the Garden, by the Grass Maze.
We hope that you will be amazed and inspired!

Cost: Free event included with Normal Garden Admission

Ages: All ages
