Macro Art

Competition 11 - Photo project

About Macro Art

The second photo project of the year is Macro Art. This is a chance to capture the world of plants and gardens on a completely different scale, utilising a unique set of photographic skills. From the life of tiny insects, to the mesmerising shapes and colours of flowers, you are encouraged to explore our green planet in miniature, whilst showcasing the beauty and complexity of nature. Judges will look for the extraordinary. Challenge their understanding of both macro photography and the flora and fauna which inhabit green spaces.
