Semi Finalists for the Ikebana Gallery Award 2020

The Ikebana Gallery Award Committee is pleased to announce that the following 31 works have been selected as semi-finalists. Five finalists will be selected shortly from these semi-finalists and will be sent to our special judges

Please tell us your favourite works on our Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/IkebanaGallery/
Please LIKE at least 3 (3 or more) works among the 31 works in the album by 20 July 2020. The most popular work will receive the People's Choice Award 2020. 

Please share the whole album and encourage your friends to vote. But please don't share individual works and encourage people to like them. We hope that students with less Facebook friends will not be at too much of a disadvantage. Let's enjoy a fair game. Have fun. Thank you. 

Congratulations to the students whose works have been selected for the semi-final. 

If you have not sent us your details and a list of materials for your work (check our Award page), please contact us soon, ikebana.gallery@gmail.com. If we don't hear from you, your work may not be considered for selection for the finalists.  

If you are selected but you are not eligible for this award (e.g. if you are a qualified teacher), please let us know soon.

Thank you all the Ikebana students who contributed this year. We hope to receive more of your works toward the Ikebana Gallery Award 2021. http://bit.ly/IGAward
