About Dundee’s Heritage and Nature

In Partnership with Dundee Heritage Trust

IGPOTY is delighted to partner with Dundee Heritage Trust (DHT) to run a Special Award competition for the first time! This free-to-enter Special Award is open to everyone (adults only), and the competition is dedicated to images captured within Dundee City, Scotland.

Insights

This competition presents an opportunity for visitors to explore and showcase Dundee’s heritage, garden and natural landscape.

We’re inviting visitors to capture natural scenes, plants and gardens from around Dundee that incorporate the city’s glorious heritage. The competition gives visitors the chance to illustrate what heritage in the city inspires them, and how it interacts with gardens, plants or nature.
