Floristry students around the country were hugely inspired by the theme for the 2012 competition. Their work pieces and supporting design notes were truly impressive. Very creative ideas were backed up by skillful application of diverse floristry techniques. As in previous years, choosing winners proved to be quite a challenge.

Each entry had to be suitable for placement on the table of a wedding banquet at a country property, either a tall or low arrangement depending on the location of the table at the wedding.

All work pieces submitted were judged on the use of floristry design elements and principles, as well as selection and use of quality materials. The judges relied on the digital photographs of the work piece submitted by each student, so high quality images, taken from the front of the design, and against a suitable backdrop, were critical to give each entry the best possible presentation

The competition was open to all Certificate III students enrolled in an accredited college and 103 students from 13 colleges in W.A. Victoria, NSW and Queensland entered. Congratulations to you all.

The teachers also did an outstanding job, encouraging their students, judging their work according to the competition marking schedule and coordinating the submission of the students’ portfolios to meet the competition deadline. Thank you!
