Photo Competition

2017 Photo Comp Banner

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

Congratulations to the winners of our 2017 Photography competition. We have chosen Luke Neale as this year's Photographer of Year for his brilliant picture - Snowdrops!

All the winning & shortlisted entries are on display in the visitor centre at Ness until Sunday 29 April, pop in and see them.

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.
