International Garden Photographer of the Year Exhibition returns to Sheringham Park

The ever popular International Garden Photographer of the Year exhibition returns to Sheringham Park this Autumn!

Wednesday 1 September  to Sunday 31 October 2021

Showcasing over 40 images from all over the world celebrating the world of plants, this prestigious exhibition can be viewed daily in the tranquil surroundings of the Bower garden at Sheringham Park.

Competition 13 featured nine main categories including favourites such as ‘The Beauty of Plants’, ‘Beautiful Gardens’ and ‘Abstract Views’ and newly added category ‘Plants & Planet’ – where a portion of the entry fees were donated to WeForest to plant new trees.
