We are thrilled that she has agreed to be our judge.You can view her work here: explains what she will be looking for in the photographic entries:“Long before winter has retreated, the promise of spring is announced by the charming white lanterns of snowdrops. They epitomise hope as their green shoots emerge from the cold, dark earth when all around is still bare and lifeless. This renewal of life from dormancy and absence reassures us that the cycles and seasons will endure, which particularly resonates with us at this time.”I will be looking for imaginative images that may illustrate this concept, as well as captures of snowdrops expressing their particular way of being in the world.”Good luck!
