Calling All Photographers

2018 is the 200th anniversary of Humphry Repton’s death. He was a nationally renowned landscape architect who designed Warley Woods and Park in the 1790s for the Galton family.

International Garden Photographer of the Year have teamed up with the National Trust and National Trust at Sheringham Park, to celebrate the work of Humphry Repton, in a new special award.

Repton was seen as the successor to Capability Brown. He was involved in approximately 400 commissions nationwide including at least eight National Trust sites in addition to Sheringham Park including: Antony (Cornwall), Ashridge (Hertfordshire), Attingham (Shropshire), Hatchlands (Surrey), Plas Newydd (Anglesey, Wales), Tatton Park (Cheshire), Uppark (West Sussex) and Wimpole (Cambridgeshire).

He was famous for producing his designs in Moroccan red leather books.

To celebrate the anniversary there is a national photographic competition which is looking for photos of Repton landscapes in the present day. See this link for details https://igpoty.com/competitions/humphry-repton-2017/
We know lots of visitors to the woods take photos so here is your chance to reach a wider audience and have the chance to win a photography competition. Get snapping!
