History 

International Garden Photographer of the Year was originally founded by five members of the Professional Garden Photographers Association in 2007: Derek Harris, Andrew Lawson, the late Emma Peios, Jane Nichols and Philip Smith. Its first outdoor exhibition took place at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, in May 2008 and quickly established itself as the world's premier garden and plant photography event. The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew remains a key partner in the project and is annual host of the opening exhibition. In 2014 until present, Tyrone McGlinchey became the new MD of IGPOTY and has grown the competition and exhibition to new levels and to new audiences worldwide

Entry to the exhibition is free, however pre-booking to visit Ickworth is essential.
