UK-based photographer Colin Roberts has won the £5,000 prize in the International Garden Photographer of the Year competition with his Sea Thrift Flowers entry, a superb shot of Widemouth Bay in Cornwall, as a beautiful sunset streams across the sea view, illuminating the flowers in the foreground.

The £2,000 Best Portfolio Prize was awarded to John Grant, from the USA, for Fairy Tales and Reveries, a collection of six incredible images exploring the boundaries between photography and art.

The Young Garden Photographer of the Year title goes to 15-year-old Jamie Unwin for the best single image from an under 16 year old. Little Mouse on some Wild Wheat is an enchanting black and white photograph of a curious wild mouse who allowed Jamie close enough to capture it on camera.
