About the competition:
Win an iPad Air and £500 worth of gardening vouchers for your school!
We've teamed up with Vitacress again for this year's RHS Young Herb Photographer of the Year competition - a great chance for young photographers to win some fantastic prizes for them and their school.
We are looking for young people to send us their photographs of living herbs growing in the wild, a garden, a container or a setting of their choice. The photo can be of any herb(s) and could be growing in the UK or abroad (pupils could get some great snaps on their summer holidays!). Photographs can also be from any season taken in the past or present.
The photograph above is last year's winner of the 5-10 years age category. Indra Woodward, 8 years old from 11th Newham West Scout Group in London won the competition with his photo of borage (Borago officinalis) which was taken while on holiday in the Peak District.
How to enter:

Categories and prizes:
There are two categories for the competition: 5-10 year olds and 11-17 year olds.
Two winners, one from each category, will be crowned RHS Young Herb Photographer of the Year and receive an iPad Air worth around £300 and £500 worth of gardening vouchers for their school or group.
One runner up from each category will receive an iPad Mini and £250 of gardening vouchers for their school or group.
