Put together a mini-portfolio of images to show the judges some of your own work with flowers, and to show them how you think creatively. Don’t worry if you don’t have many images, or the quality isn’t as good as you’d like - our judges aren’t looking for professionals with years of experience - they’re looking for people who can show they have natural talent and creativity and the potential to successfully advance their career.
Your mini-portfolio can be in any file format you like (JPEG, Word, PowerPoint or PDF), but the file size must not exceed 20Mb in total.
Although not compulsory, the judges would love you to share images of some or all of your floral creations used in your mini-portfolio on Instagram.
