Enter our photography competition to win WOLF-Garten tools

Calling all amateur photographers and garden enthusiasts – the National Garden Scheme photography competition in association with BBC Gardeners’ World is back for a second year!

After the success of last year’s competition, which had over 1,000 entries, we’re inviting amateur photographers to take their cameras and camera phones to National Garden Scheme garden openings between 15th March and 28th August 2018 and get creative.

Photographers can submit photos under six categories – including BBC Gardeners’ World Magazine: Fantastic Flowers, from which the winning image will appear in the magazine’s 2019 calendar.

All entrants have the chance of winning prizes worth over £950 from our sponsor, WOLF-Garten – whose gardening tool collection offers the total solution from lawn care, soil and cultivation, tree and shrub care through to general garden maintenance.

The judging panel of George Plumptre, CEO of National Garden Scheme, a professional photographer (TBC) and Lucy Hall, editor of BBC Gardeners’ World magazine, will select the winner of Best Overall Photo from all competition submissions, as well as a winner from each category.

The Best Overall Photo will receive a WOLF-Garten 72v lithium bundle, including lawnmower, leaf blower, hedge trimmer, and grass trimmer, worth £950, and each category winner will receive £100 to spend on the current WOLF-Garten range (including cutting tools, cultivating tools, power tools etc.).

George Plumptre, CEO of National Garden Scheme, said about the compeition: “For the National Garden Scheme’s first photography competition in 2017 we received over 1,000 entries and we are sure this year’s competition will create even more interest and excitement – particularly with such excellent prizes from our sponsors WOLF-Garten.

“There are countless photographic opportunities in the beautiful gardens that open for charity as part of the National Garden Scheme and this competition celebrates the glorious sights to be seen when visiting a garden throughout spring and summer.”

The deadline for entries is midnight on 28th August 2018 – and don’t forget to tag us in to your posts on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, using #ngscomp18
