Beautiful Blenheim opens for entries on September 16th 2019 and closes on April 8th 2020.

Selected winners will feature at the 2020 exhibition at Blenheim Palace and will be published in the latest IGPOTY annual book. First place prizes also include a private tour of Blenheim Palace and a champagne afternoon tea for two plus a delightful Blenheim Palace hamper.
