The third Garden Rose Design Contest has been held, and the winners have been selected! Entries were received between May 1 and June 28, 2020.
This 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. This year we had more than 100 entries, and the quality of entries was superb.
Rather than have a panel of judges as we’ve done in previous years, 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.
We have counted the 2,800+ online votes and have the winners!
