Normanby Hall Photography Award

Competition 15 - Special award

About Normanby Hall Photography Award

To celebrate the IGPOTY outdoor exhibition coming to Normanby Hall Country Park for the very first time, a special photographic award is being launched this spring 2021.

Insights

With over 300, beautiful acres to explore, as well as historical woodland and the Walled Garden - there is plenty of opportunities for garden photography.

Wider benefits

Try to avoid macro close-ups of plants and out-of-context shots. Photography entered needs to remain recognisable and identifiable as being from Normanby Hall and its grounds.

Aim to only enter images that have been captured from the last 3 years. And make sure if you are taking pictures that include recognisable people as part of the landscape, to ask their permission.

Only 1st, 2nd and 3rd places will be on show alongside the main IGPOTY exhibition. All awarded places will feature on the IGPOTY website.
