This year we have an outstanding range of awards on offer, including a top cash prize of £5000 for the overall winner plus a Royal Photographic Society gold medal for the Portfolio winner.

Whether you win or not, IGPOTY has something to offer everyone. Uniquely among photography competitions, we offer every photographer who enters the chance to receive a personal email critique of their entry from the judges (once the winners are announced) as well as an invitation to an Entrants’ Day in 2011 at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.

There are six categories, with awards for single images as well as portfolios. There is a special award for the image that best portrays the ‘Spirit of the American Garden’.
