World Renowned Photographic Exhibition Arrives at National Trust, Sissinghurst
A collection of winning images from the prestigious International Garden Photographer of the Year (IGPOTY) competition will be displayed at National Trust, Sissinghurst from 16 January to 28 February.
The iconic Sissinghurst Castle Garden will play host to 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.
The exhibition at NT Sissinghurst will be one of the most visually striking exhibitions to date featuring some of the biggest images ever displayed at an IGPOTY event, including 1.5m and 1m long fine art prints.
Kate Shaw, Events and Marketing Manager at Sissinghurst Castle said:
“We are really excited to be hosting the exhibition this year, there’s a great set of images to see and we’ve got some surprises too from our Garden team who have helped to bring it to life and bring a little of the outdoors inside. 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.’’
