Verdant Works Photo Competition in Partnership With IGPOTY

6 December - 19 February, 2023

 

 

 

Dundee Heritage Trust (DHT) are thrilled to be partnering with the prestigious International Garden Photographer of the Year (IGPOTY) to launch a special competition celebrating Dundee’s heritage and its natural world, inviting photographers of all levels in the city and beyond to capture natural scenes, plants and gardens from in and around Dundee that incorporate the city’s glorious heritage, to be judged by curators of one of the world’s leading garden photography competitions. 

Named ‘Dundee’s Heritage and Nature’, the special competition is open to adults aged 18+. It calls on participants to showcase heritage in the city that inspires them and how it interacts with gardens, plants or nature. The competition is free to enter and is open for entries until 12 noon on 19th February 2024. Each participant can enter up to 8 images for consideration, which will be judged jointly by IGPOTY and DHT.  

The competition comes ahead of Verdant Works welcoming IGPOTY Exhibition 17 to their High Mill in Spring 2024, following on from the success of hosting IGPOTY Exhibition 16 this year – the first time that an IGPOTY Exhibition had ever been shown in the city. 

Of the entrants, at least three winning photographs will be selected to be shown in the IGPOTY Exhibition 17 at Verdant Works, alongside other exciting prizes from Dundee Heritage Trust. Entries are welcomed from amateurs and professionals alike, whether a Dundee resident or otherwise. Up to 8 entries per adult can be submitted for free via the IGPOTY website, where visitors can also find the full competition rules and terms and conditions.
