This years theme is flora and fauna. This is a massive show with over 1000 images from Russian and foreign photographers with just a handful of photographers selected from the UK.

Her particular interest is horse photography and her image of Ivan has been selected for posters, tickets and advanced publicity. Her work can be seen at
