Member Design Competition

Taste the relish to be found in competition — in having put forth the best within you.

Henry Kaiser

Are you ready to find the answer to that inner voice that keeps asking you if your designs are really good enough?
Do you believe that personalised feedback on your design from internationally qualified floral art judges will help you reach your design goals?

When you answer yes to these questions it’s time to enter our monthly online floral art competition.

This competition is open to any member of FloralArtOnline.Com ready to submit a photo of a design of their own making based on the given title (and sometimes design style) for each month.

As members, you may enter as many designs as your level of membership allows – Basic allows 1 per month, Enhanced allows 3 per month and Focus allows 5 designs per month. Each design will receive written feedback within 3 days of the close of the design.

When entries are open you will find the title and required design style outlined here as well as submission details and closing date.

All designs are judged by accredited floral art judges and all designers will receive feedback from the judges. With permission, the winning design/s will be featured here and can be viewed by clicking the links below the details for this month’s competition.

Plant material must predominate. No artificial plant material may be used. Minimal embellishments may be used. Fresh and/or dried plant material is acceptable.

Size: 60cm width, height unlimited, judged from the front

This month the judges have issued a challenge that covers not just this month’s title, but all the titles for the remainder of the year. Each title/month will be judged on its own merits, however the four remaining titles will also be judged as a series of interpretations as they relate to one another – Earth (this month), Fire (October), Water (November), Air (December). You will receive further instructions from our Online Competitions Co-ordinator.

One image should accompany your entry along with your construction notes including the size of your design.


Design images and construction details should be emailed to our Member Competition Co-ordinator.

Previous Competition Designs

The team at FloralArtOnline are working through these titles to produce some example designs as many of our members are not yet confident enough to have their designs published. We respect your choice and hope our designs will help you all.
