The RHS Photographic Competition 2020 is now open for entries!
The RHS says that their competition "inspires young and old alike to get outdoors and record how enriching and inspiring gardens and plants can be."
This is a great chance to test your photographic skills (I can tell you now, I won't be entering as mine are non-existant).
There are 9 entry categories, as follows:
Last year's winners were:
Congratulations to Jason Kneale for this unbelievable photo! A spider sits patiently in its web, which itself is suspended between two cow parsley in a meadow in Wiltshire. The spider is backed by the early morning sun. This photo was taken on a Canon 7D using a 70-200mm telephoto lens. Wow, Jason, I am in awe! I just LOVE this shot! And I wish you well with your photography...
Winning photos will be on display at the RHS Gardens - find out more about their tour here.
The deadline for the 2020 competition is 10am, 2 March 2020 - that's for ALL entries - and there's a very helpful FAQ page with questions such as, What happens if I turn 18 while the competition is open?
Even if you're not likely to be entering with your photography skills, do take a look at the previous comeptition winners. I am still trying to take a picture with the whole of my dog's head in it, as opposed to half of him, so love to see photography that's so fantastic.
