This competition is now closed for entries.

Photograph your special garden in its best light and share the picture with us for a chance to win a fantastic prize in World Land Trust’s (WLT) Great Garden Give photo competition.

It could be a cottage garden, urban courtyard or wildlife haven. It could belong to you, or to someone you know. It could even be a beautifully landscaped local park. Wherever it is, whatever it is, we’d love to hear about it!

You can enter via WLT’s Facebook page, Twitter or Instagram. Simply upload a photo of your special garden with a short caption to let us know where it is and why it means so much to you.

Each week we’ll select the best picture to win £25 in garden vouchers. One lucky winner will take home £150 in vouchers and a signed copy of a book by WLT Patron Sir David Attenborough.

Thank you to National Garden Gift Vouchers for generously sponsoring the prize vouchers and to Media Bounty for designing the competition app for WLT’s Facebook page.

Final date for entries is 8 August 2014.

Great Garden Give

The photographic competition is being run in association with Great Garden Give, WLT’s summer campaign to raise funds to purchase and protect threatened habitats through WLT's Buy an Acre projects.

All you have to do is measure or estimate the size of a garden you love (your own, or someone else’s). Enter the area of the garden into the Great Garden Give calculator and then make the donation suggested. At 2.5p per square metre, a donation of £2.50 will match the size of an average UK garden of 100 square metres - so it won’t break the bank!

WLT saves threatened habitats acre by acre by creating nature reserves across the world. By giving to WLT’s Buy an Acre appeal you can help us create new reserves and extend existing ones to provide a safe haven for some of Earth’s most vulnerable wildlife.

WLT will transfer every donation, large or small, to the Buy an Acre fund where it will be used to purchase either threatened savanna grassland in Bolivia or forest in urgent need of protection in Colombia, Ecuador or Mexico
