A collection of winning images from the prestigious International Garden Photographer of the Year (IGPOTY) Ten Year Anniversary Exhibition will be displayed at Cambridge University Botanic Garden from November 1 – December 22 2017.
The exhibition will feature the very best botanical photography from across the world, celebrating the beauty and importance of plant life in its many diverse forms. 8 main categories including The Beauty of Plants, Wildflower Landscapes, Beautiful Gardens and Breathing Spaces will be on display, plus winners from the Macro Art Photo Project. From a rare lone orchid in the Hengduan Mountain Range in China, to an atmospheric sunrise in the Peak District, the exhibition will take visitors on an inspirational journey through sights both familiar and unknown.
This year’s exhibition will be even bigger for a truly immersive experience, featuring the 12 panel IGPOTY outdoor exhibition structure, with each panel measuring 1.8m x 1.8m.

The IGPOTY exhibition tours the UK and worldwide. The competition runs from February to October each year and has a first-place prize of £7,500.
