International Garden Photographer of the Year announced.


The International Garden Photographer of the Year 2008 awards were announced last month, at the Royal Botanic Gardens.

The overall winner of the 5000 [pounds sterling] prize for the best single image is Australian, professional photographer, Claire Takacs for Kenrokuen Gardens, Japan. This evocative photograph of the famous Japanese gardens in a flurry of snowflakes was selected from the Garden Views category.

Best Portfolio Prize went to amateur photographer, Henrique Souto from Portugal. Her immaculate studio shots of autumn leaves reflect Henrique's passion for the natural world and above all, trees, said the judges.
