About Beautiful Gardens

Supported by The English Garden magazine

Visiting a garden is a great day out for many of us. We can stand and admire the work of gardeners who have dedicated themselves to creating a personal paradise for the enjoyment of themselves and others. You can enter images from gardens in any part of the world, from Tokyo to Tuscany, from Montréal to Melbourne. As the photographer you are the storyteller. The judges will be on the lookout for images that show us what is special about a particular garden, whether it’s large or small, whether it’s a chic design statement or a plantsman’s paradise. Tell us the story.
