Hanging Installation Competitions – Bloom

Step into a world where nature’s vibrant palette meets artistic ingenuity.

We invite floral artists nation-wide to push the boundaries of creativity and design and transform a structure into a large scale hanging installation that creates a “Wow Factor”.

THEME: “Natural Beauty”.

Participants are challenged to weave tales of beauty through their floral masterpieces, captivating the senses and transcending traditional boundaries. Each installation is a testament to the boundless possibilities that arise when nature and art intertwine.

This competition not only celebrates the artistry of floral design but also encourages minimal environmental impact, embracing eco-friendly practices and the use of locally sourced blooms.  It is a conscious effort to harmonise the beauty of our planet with the beauty of our creations.
