Ness Botanic Gardens is delighted to announce a new photographic competition which is open to everyone – amateurs and professionals alike – and will take place from 1st December 2011 to 1st December 2012 at Ness. The competition is being run in conjunction with Heswall Photographic Society with support from Ness in judging the entries.

We are looking for inspiring and beautiful photographs illustrating the different seasons at Ness. What image captures the seasons at Ness for you? Could it be the colourful spring crocus lawn, or the magnificent wildflower meadow, autumn fungi or a winter wonderland? We have a range of prizes available to winners and to runners-up, together with the unique prize of having a photograph exhibited in our visitor centre. Your task is to capture the following seasons:   Winter – 1st December 2011 – 28th February 2012 Spring – 1st March – 31st May 2012 Summer – 1st June – 30th September 2012 Autumn – 1st October – 1st December 2012
