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

Saturday 22 October to Sunday 18 December 2022

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.

IGPOTY exhibition 15 features categories such as abstract views, beautiful gardens, the world of fungi, and trees, woods and forests. The overall winner was Magdalena Wasiczek's image 'The Stardust', featuring a large white or cabbage white butterfly at rest on a flower head surrounded by raindrops resembling stardust.
