About The Spirit of Trauttmansdorff

In partnership with The Gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle

Voted International Garden of the Year in 2013, Trauttmansdorff is one of the world’s most remarkable gardens. Its creation was strongly influenced by South Tyrolean culture and politics, which continue to influence its broad botanical development today.

The brief of this special award is for photographers to tap into this essence of the Gardens whilst seeking out the intersections between nature, art and culture. Judges will look for images that embody this enduring vision.

Insights

Previous winners have managed to communicate aspects of art, culture and nature that bind together to form Trauttmansdorff. Look for plants and scenes which reinforce the wider context of the Gardens with flair and originality.

Wider benefits

Trauttmansdorff is a one-of-a-kind botanical garden. It currently ranks as South Tyrol’s most popular tourist destination, embodying local culture and politics. It is encircled by the snow-capped Gruppo di Tessa (Texelgruppe) Mountains, which soar to a height of three thousand metres. Trauttmansdorff features more than eighty garden landscapes with twelve hectares of natural and man-made areas, with plants from every corner of the globe.

To visit is to appreciate a unique blend of nature, culture and art that will help inspire other aspects of your creative work. If you haven't given time to yourself to visit anywhere new or need a break, the Gardens and South Tyrol in general, are a perfect way to reconnect with nature and culture through photography.
