Photo Competition

2015 Winner Banner

The Ness Gardens 2017 Photography Competition is now open. We want to inspire young and old alike to get outdoors with a camera and record how enriching and inspiring Ness can be. This year's competition runs from 20th January to Thursday 30th November 2017.

There are five categories for adults - Plants, Gardens, Wildlife, Abstract and Portifolio.  There are also categories for Young Photographer (10-17 years) and Children's Photographer (under 10s).

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