Floral design students flaunt talents

Tough competition -- yet again

This year's National Floristry Design Competition saw 10 different schools and colleges compete, and over 130 different students enter.

The skill, flair and artistic talent demonstrated in this year's competition has been like no other year. It was VERY hard to determine the winners, as the competence was so high, and the imagination so vivid. Our judges had a tough job and mulled over photos and marking schedules for many an hour.

For each of the winners -- congratulations!

For those that were highly commended -- please understand, if we had had more money for awards, we would have awarded you too. The competition this year was fierce and your entries were superb.

Thank you to all that entered. The winners and those commended, will be published in the December issue of the Australian Flower Inudstry magazine. Copies can be obtained through www.australiaflowerindustry.com.au.
