Dom said: "This is a great opportunity for kids to get outside and explore nature, while doing something creative. Winning the title of RHS Young Photographer could be a stepping stone for talented young adults, as well as an introduction to a new hobby for younger kids. We're expecting to see some fantastic entries from wildlife pictures to plant and gardening shots."
