MyGardenSchool, the world’s first virtual gardening school – where every course is taught by a world leading gardening expert – today launches its global garden photography competition. MyGardenSchool's garden photography competition features 5 categories: Landscape And Nature, Garden Photography, Flower Photography, Macro Photography and People In The Garden. The competition runs monthly and is open to garden photographers, amateurs or pro, all over the world.


The MyGardenSchool monthly garden photography competition is completely free to enter and is an exciting opportunity for members to showcase their work to a global audience. Winning entries will not only be exhibited on the MyGardenSchool homepage for a month – before being archived in the MyGardenSchool online gallery – but also will be actively promoted by MyGardenSchool via a monthly press release, which we will distribute to over 70 global news sites. The winning entry to each category will receive a 50% OFF (MGS) coupon code and be entered into the People’s Choice Award for the best photo of the year and a chance to win a DSLR camera at the end of the year.
