Amateur and professional photographers are urged to enter this year’s RHS Photographic Competition which, for the first time, will only accept digital entries.

Offering a top prize of £1,000, categories are: Plant Portraits; Abstracts & Details; Gardens through the Seasons; Wildlife in the Garden; and People in the Garden.

Commenting on the decision to go all digital, an RHS spokesman said: ‘As the vast majority of photographs are taken digitally we feel this move should open the competition even wider and remove the burden of print and postage costs from entrants.’

A Young Photographer of the Year section is open to those under 18.

Entry costs £6 per image for non-RHS members and £5 for members.

Entry into the young photographer categories is free.

The closing date 31 August 2012.
