Entries are beginning to roll in and it looks as though we are going to have some really great photographs!
One common question that I have been asked is if there are categories for the entries so that those of lessor experience can have a chance at winning. Yes, there are categories for this contest which are listed on the main contest page and also below.
Grand prize, overall best bonsai.
Best bonsai by a non-professional artist.
Best bonsai by a professional artist.
Best North American bonsai.
Best penjing, saikei or forest planting.
Best companion planting.
Professional artist is defined as anyone who has received compensation for teaching classes, giving demos, workshops, or for selling bonsai. The classification for professional or non-professional is only valid for the two categories Best bonsai by a non-professional artist
and Best bonsai by a professional artist
in all the other categories there are no divisions.
Everyone has a chance so please send your entries to [email protected]
and we will get them posted.
