International Garden Photographer of the Year is administered and run by Mirror Plate Media Ltd.
Environmental and ethical policy
All business activities inevitably lead to a series of ecological and social impacts. As far as possible, we share car journeys, walk/cycle to work and use rail travel. Our exhibitions are designed to maximise locally sourced, recycled or renewable materials and minimise waste.
All our books are printed on FSC certified paper.
To enforce the message of the competition and "images of a green planet" - the IGPOTY website is now proudly hosted by a green web host: Krystal Hosting Ltd, England, using 100% renewable power.
We exercise a fair and ethical policy towards our contributing photographers. We ask for the right to reproduce photographs free-of-charge, in order to promote our exhibitions and our participating photographers, and to support the competition. However, we believe that all photographers, whether professional or amateur should be paid for reproduction rights outside the scope of these events. All exhibited photographers retain copyright of their photographs.
