The International Garden Photographer of the Year exhibition resides in the castle gallery.

The IGPOTY exhibition tours the UK and at selected sites across the world since 2013. The tour is presented in Dennenlohe, too.

It can be hired as a complete show or it can be themed for smaller spaces. For example, it is possible to hire only the 'Trees' photographs or only the winners in each category.

The exhibition is fully supported by popular merchandise - including a range of associated books, prints, greetigns cards and postcards. We also organise a programme of educational events, including day-long workshops, lectures and 'walk and talk' gallery tours.

The exhibition can be configured in various ways; typically it consists of fine art quality prints on Hannemuhle rag paper.Displayed in frames with traditional cardboard bevelled mounts and fitted with white mirror plates, ready to hang. Or they can be supplied as high quality prints on Foamex board, for outdoor or other specific uses.
