International Garden Photographer of the Year Exhibition at Sissinghurst

Come and see winning and runner up entries for the International Garden Photographer of the Year exhibition at Sissinghurst

A collection of images from the prestigious International Garden Photographer of the Year competition will be displayed at Sissinghurst Castle Garden from 16 January to 5 March.

While the garden is closed for rest and important conservation, we will be hosting some of the best garden, plant and landscape photography from amateur and professional photographers across the globe.

From portrait to panorama, from the quirky and amusing, to the outright wondrous, these photographs reflect the everlasting appeal of the garden and vividly showcase images of a green planet. Categories include the Beauty of Plants, Wildlife in the Garden and Wildflower Landscapes among others.

We are really excited to be hosting the exhibition again this year, there’s a great set of images to see, our garden team will be creating an upside down dried flower garden as well as bringing a little of the outdoors inside with fresh flowers and plants too. They’ve been busy drying flowers and growing hundreds of plants as well as designing handcrafted pots and structures to make it a truly unmissable exhibition.
