The New York Botanical Garden is participating as the exclusive United States partner in the International Garden Photographer of the Year (IGPOTY) contest, which is run in association with the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, United Kingdom. (DOUBLE CLICK ON ANY IMAGE TO ENLARGE)Open to everyone anywhere in the world, the contest is the premier competition and exhibition specializing in garden, plant, flower, and botanical photography. Winning photographs in multiple categories will receive a monetary prize, are published in an annual book, and are displayed in a public exhibition.
This year, IGPOTY will be offering a special commendation for pictures photographed at The New York Botanical Garden in honor of its 120th anniversary. The winner of that category will also receive a free one-year Membership to the Garden. To learn more and enter...There are many categories, various fees and rolling entries throughout the garden year. To submit a portfolio of 6 images, the fee is about $40 and because I'm so cheap, I'm showing some of mine here.By all means enter the contest but If you email me your fav image taken at the NYBG, I'll post it here: esp@ellenspectorplatt.com.No more than 1 from each person please.

I think one can also submit up to 4 photos per category for their contest, and each category costs 10 pounds, sterling. Potentially $40 could give you 16 photos - unless I have misunderstood their rules?

Love those allium!

Shady, many thanks.
Georgia, Don't I wish I were good enough! (And false modesty has never been one of my sins.)
Marie, Those allium are now delightful seed heads.
