The Ikebana Gallery Award Committee is pleased to announce that the following 28 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.

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, 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.

We have been harassed online for a while. Consequently we have lost the details of some applicants. If your work was selected but your name was not listed, please let us know your details. Thank you.    

Thank you all the Ikebana students who contributed this year. We hope to receive more of your works toward the Ikebana Gallery Award 2020.
