Capture the magic and win!
With a share of $10 000 in prize money up for grabs and a place for the winning photograph in the acclaimed ‘International Garden Photographer of the Year’ exhibition in the UK, it’s still not too late for photographers, both professional and amateur, to pick up their cameras and capture the wonders of a botanic garden.
Photographs will be judged in six categories:
Categories 1-4 are for photographs taken in a botanic garden in Australia or New Zealand, with separate divisions for professionals and amateurs. Categories 5-6 are open to all photographers in any botanic garden.
In a welcome addition, the third Gardens in Focus competition includes a new category inviting photographers to get creative with their shots by making use of the wizardry of computer software.
Finalist entrants will also be given the opportunity to get written feedback on their images and take a free workshop with chief judge, Chris Jones.
A selection of winning and commended entries from the Gardens in Focus competition will be exhibited at the Royal Botanic Garden, Sydney in autumn 2013.
