Floral Designers are amongst the best visual content creators across all relevant industries. Whether it be informative, entertaining, aesthetic or educational, flowers are at the forefront of the most viewed visual content available, gaining a lot of attention and encouragement on social media platforms. The Natio Botanical Moments Floral Design Competition explores and elevates the traditional skill set of floristry to celebrate the ever evolving floral installation trends.
As the presenter of this competition, Natio invites participants to create an installation that has synergy with the Natio brand voice. Natio is Latin for creation and the ancient name for the Goddess of Nature. The name symbolises the pure, plant-based origins of their product range. Natio is a proudly Australian, family-owned business that is guided by a deep appreciation for the natural world and a strong belief that nature nurtures best.
2024 THEME: “Natural Beauty”
The below images on the left are from the 2023 Shop Window Floral Design Competition at the Show. Please note that this competition has now changed to the Natio Botanical Moments Floral Design Competition and will be more like the images on the right.
The task at hand? Create a 3 x 2m installation that speaks the language of nature, telling a story that transcends the visual realm. Competitors will be provided with a photographic set design backdrop to produce a space that explores a harmonious blend of creativity, craftsmanship and a deep understanding of botanical aesthetic.
The Natio Botanical Moments Floral Design Competition will profile up to 12 installations at the 2024 Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show from Wednesday 20th March to Sunday 24th March within the Carlton Gardens.
