World floral art success

The World Flower Show for floral art has just ended in Dublin and among the winners are some Kiwi names.

Overall winner (best in show) was Vinita Khemka of India with Wendy Parsons (UK) runner-up. Watch a 2min 34 video about the show here, which includes a delightfully excited Janitha Holt of New Zealand. And there’s a small gallery of still photos here.

Sylvia Scott of Hamilton, New Zealand won the “Imposed Exhibit” section, one of the big awards.

In the competition classes, Sylvia also won the Conundrum section; Elizabeth Chapman (Geraldine) was Commended in Living Art; Francine Thomas (Tauranga) was placed Third in Spontaneous Approach; Annette Waller (Geraldine) was Commended in Flight Patterns; Glenis Bealing (Dannevirke) Commended in Delight in the Detail; Anne McKay (Oamaru) was Third in Austere Beauty; Marilyn Page (Hibiscus Coast) was Third in Defining Line; Linda Richardson (Hamilton) Second and Rosalie Barr (Matamata) Commended in Light Flow; Linda Smith (Takapuna) Commended in Variation on a Theme; Marguerita McBeath (Cambridge) First in Weaving Dreams; and the Kiwis made a clean sweep of the top three prizes in Concepts – Val De Lautour (Palmerston North) First, Janthia Holt (Nelson) Second and Jenny Wallace (Temuka/Clandeboye) Third.

The show, which even featured its own stamp, is held every three years with the next World Flower Show in Barbados in 2017. Find information about the NZ Floral Art Society here.
