Before & After Photos | Competition Tips

We are always talking to our communities, schools and ambassadors about the importance of taking great photos to document their journey. In relation to our annual competition photos are a great feature of our judging packs, providing a wealth of inspirational imagery. our judges are often moved by the hard work and sense of togetherness that these images convey.

Before and after photos are particularly good at depicting a process. Nothing illustrates a garden transformation like 'Before and After' photos. So many communities we speak to say that they wish that they had documented the process with images. And those that did talk of how rewarding it is to look back at them and see how far they have come!

Take a look at these AMAZING before and after examples from our Schools, Communities & Ambassadors...
