The Royal Horticultural Society has announced the winners of its annual RHS Photographic Competition
. There were some stunning entries among the 8,000 submitted. Josie Elias won the £1000 RHS Photographer of the Year 2012 with her photo of tulips surrounding an olive tree. Alex Berryman, aged 15, won the RHS Young Photographer of the Year 2012 with his photo of a fledgling robin in his back garden, for which he receives a digital camera. I've shown Jacky Parker's delicate photo of a Spider
, which won first prize in the Wildlife in the Garden Category. The Telegraph's slide show of top entries is easy to use (CLICK

). Idiot bankers take note: you don't need to offer £20,000 or £30,000 in prize money to attract submissions, hoping to prove that you're with it. All you actually do is prove that you're without it! Clueless sponsors not needed for this competition.
