The stunning, free entry, International Garden Photographer of the Year exhibition (IGPOTY) is returning to the Ironbridge Gorge Museums as part of its worldwide tour. Showcasing the beauty and importance of a green planet, the exhibition in the Fusion Gallery, adjacent to Jackfield Tile Museum will be open from 3rd May until 17th September .

IGPOTY continues to be the world’s most prestigious global photography competition for garden, plant and botanical photography. It’s open to all ages, amateurs and professionals alike, with a Young Garden Photographer of the Year award for under 17s.

The exhibition in the Fusion Gallery, at Jackfield Tile Museum will feature the winners of Competition 11, which attracted some 19,000 individual entries from over 50 countries. Images will be taken from ten main competition categories and Photo Projects including: The Beauty of Plants, Wildflower Landscapes, Macro Art, Beautiful Gardens, Trees, Woods and Forests, Abstract Views and The Bountiful Earth. The winning image of Competition 11, Cerrado Sunrise, was taken by Marcio Cabral of Brazil.

Supported by the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, IGPOTY aims to champion photography both as an art form and as a mode of communication helping to strengthen the bond between people, plants, gardens and nature as well as broaden public understanding of the natural world.

Curtis McGlinchey, IGPOTY Manager said: “Ironbridge is a remarkable place and it is an absolute privilege to bring the exhibition there. The exhibition celebrates plant life in its many diverse forms but it also helps us reflect upon our relationship with the natural world. The importance of the intersection between nature and technology is a prominent quality shared between both Ironbridge and IGPOTY, and it is one that makes the exhibition feel especially relevant at this historic location.”
