We are thrilled to announce the winners of our second annual Garden Rose Design Contest. Participation was even higher this year than for the first edition of the contest. Hundreds of entries were submitted, by designers in 37 countries around the world! Ranging widely in style, the submissions truly inspired us with their creative use of color, texture and form—proof that garden roses and floral artistry are a perfect match. As in 2018, we invited submissions in two categories: Wedding Bouquet and Everyday Design. This year, the contest also took place in two arenas, as two separate contests: a World contest and a second contest specifically organized for designers in the Commonwealth of Independent States, plus Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania, with a single category of design. World Contest Winners Judges for the World contest were Jose R. Azout, president of Alexandra Farms; David J.C. Austin, managing director of David Austin Roses; Tomas De Bruyne, international floral designer and educator; and David Coake, editorial director of Florists’ Review Magazine. Look for a full story on this year’s contest in the October 2019 issue of Florists’ Review.
