RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2020 Floristry & Floral Design Competition

 

Dear NAFAS members,

The RHS Chelsea Team want to let you know of an exciting change that will be taking place at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2020.

We are delighted to announce that we are combining the Chelsea Florist / Young Florist of the Year, and Floral Arranger competitions.

This new area celebrating the beauty of floral design will be found in the Great Pavilion, where we are offering four themes, and two staging platforms to choose from.

The application process will be changing slightly from previous years and will open to all floral designers both amateur and professional. The application process will involve uploading a drawing of your design, a brief description, and photo(s) of your previous work. Exhibitors will be allocated on the merit of their application.

We wish you the best of luck in your application.

Full details of the competition’s regulations, themes, staging options and judging criteria can be found in the Competition Factsheet to be found below.

 

 

 

 

Deadline: Friday 29 November

 

Please contact Clare Greene claregreene@rhs.org.uk with any queries.

Best of luck with your application,

With best wishes,

The Chelsea Team
