Taunton Flower Show
Taunton flower show is the largest event of its type in the West Country. We get more than 15,000 visitors over the two days of the show in early August. The competitions marquee is at the heart of the show and the photographic competition is a key part of that. There are eight classes for photography, seven of these are "standard" classes and one is our championship class.
We offer generous prize money and there are cuts also to be one.
