This year, Tintagel Old Post Office is celebrating the story of its traditional cottage gardens through the exhibition 'From bud to blossom' which will be running 12-25 September.

To coincide with this, we are running a photography competition and asking for entries predominatly featuring the gardens and the plants and animals within it.

The best entries will be shortlised and displayed throughout the house during the garden exhibition. The winners will be decided by public vote from the visitors.

The top three finalists will receive:

  • 1st place - a print of the house
  • 2nd place - a colour guidebook
  • 3rd place - Tintagel Old Post Office branded bookmark

Entry is free and you can submit as many images as you like.

Simply send your best snaps to:

The competition was very popular last year, where emphasis was placed on the house. We look forward to seeing your entries this time around.

Good luck and get snapping!

Terms and conditions apply. Please ask for a member of staff for a terms and coniditions form during your visit to the house or, if you prefer, we will be happy to e-mail one to you.
