Thank you for entering Competition 11

Thank you all so much to everyone who entered Competition 11, and thank you for your patience as we experienced unprecedented demand. The hard part is over, now sit back and relax whilst the IGPOTY judges get to work.

If you haven’t entered IGPOTY this year the shortlisting procedure is as follows:

1. Judging begins.
2. Shortlist chosen.
3. All entrants receive a prompt via email to login and check their account. This prompt will also be posted on social media channels. Your dashboard will indicate if you have been shortlisted or not.
4. Shortlisted photographers upload high-res directly to website (and ensure all required photograph information has been entered). 
5. Final places decided.
6. All shortlisted entrants receive a prompt via email to login and check their account. The dashboard will indicate if your photograph has been awarded a place.

We aim to begin shortlisting on the week commencing November 13 for around 1 week. Please be around for a small amount of time during this period to ensure you can respond to any shortlist requests. The sooner you get high-res images and information to us the better - this is much appreciated.

We’ll be in touch again with all entrants via email and keep you updated at every step. If you still have questions don’t hesitate to get in touch with us directly on social channels or via email. If you’ve been in touch already we will respond as quickly as we can.

As ever, winners are made public when we launch the exhibition at Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew in February. We can’t wait to see the winners there.

Also remember entries into the Humphry Repton Special Award will remain open until midday on December 31 2017.

Best of luck and thank you again from the IGPOTY Team.
