2016 Photo Banner

The 2018 competition is now open and will run until Friday 21 December 2018.

The shortlist for last year's competition will be unveiled at our exhibition which begins in the Visitor centre on Saturday 17 February. The winners of the 2017 Competition will be announced on Saturday 24 March.

There are two free to enter categories for children: 11-16 years and 10 & under. Pictures must be taken at Ness, depicting something plant, garden or wildlife-related.

There are five categories for adults - Plants, Landscape, Wilder-Ness, Abstract (pictures taken at Ness) and a new category for 2018 - Outdoor Spaces (a picture taken in your back garden, local park or any favourite outdoor space). 

Photographers of all ages can also enter the Social Media category: just post your picture taken at Ness via our Twitter, Instagram or Facebook accounts, using the hashtag #NBGphotocomp. The image can be related to the categories - Plants, Gardens, Wildlife and Abstract. A monthly winner will be selected and then be fed into the competition judging.
