Wonders of Westbury

Competition-14 - Special award

About Wonders of Westbury

In association with the National Trust Westbury Court Garden

International Garden Photographer of the Year (IGPOTY) and National Trust Westbury Court Garden have partnered to offer a new free-to-enter special award to celebrate the wonders of this beautiful Dutch water garden.

The historic garden, enriched with canals and clipped-hedges, is a perfect location for all types of garden and landscape photography.

From the parterre to the tall pavilion and the box hedges and canals beyond, Westbury is a garden utopia, just waiting to be captured.

Insights

Look for recognisable scenes of Westbury from the garden which reinforce the wider context of the gardens with flair and originality. Avoid out-of-context macro shots of plants.
