The winning and finalist images from one of the most prestigious international photography competitions are revealed on 3rd March 2012 at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.

From magnificent and magical flowers in ‘The Beauty of Plants’, secret and fascinating creatures in ‘Wildlife Havens’, breathtaking and delightful views in ‘Beautiful Gardens’, incredible and interesting urban life captured in ‘Greening the City’, to a celebration of enjoyable outdoor places in ‘Breathing Spaces’ (sponsored by the National Trust). The collection gives an insight to the wonders of plants, gardens, landscapes and nature, and our relationship with our green planet that will amaze and inspire.
The exhibition of spectacular photographs will be located indoors at Kew Gardens for the first time, in the beautiful Nash Conservatory.
