Last Year’s Contest

Last year the contest accepted any type of design, as long as it used garden roses! Bridal bouquets, vase arrangements, and large installations were all accepted. There were more than 100 entries, and the quality of the entries was superb. Because of Covid 19, the winners were selected by a public online vote.
Also new to the 2020 contest, worldwide entries were all rated together. In previous years we had several different contests for different places around the world.

These Were the Winners
