International Garden Photographer of the Year has launched a new special award in partnership with Blenheim Palace.

The special award will accompany a major International Garden Photographer of the Year outdoor exhibition at Blenheim Palace in 2019.

The free to enter award, Beautiful Blenheim, aims to celebrate the many stunning areas of the estate through photography like never before, encouraging tourists, the local community and young people to take part.

From ancient woodlands and Sites of Special Scientific Interest to the 2,000-acre Capability Brown designed landscape, there are countless opportunities for photographers of all skill levels.

Beautiful Blenheim opens for entries on November 19 2018 and closes on April 8 2019.

Selected winners will feature at the 2019 exhibition at Blenheim Palace and will be published in the latest IGPOTY annual book. First place prizes also include a private tour of Blenheim Palace and a champagne afternoon tea for two.

The estate is a garden photographer’s dream.”
