Calling All Designers: Enter the International Plantscape Awards

Calling All Designers: Enter the International Plantscape Awards

Applications are being accepted through April 13 for AmericanHort’s International Plantscape Awards.

The International Plantscape Awards recognize outstanding achievements in interior plantscape design, installation, creativity, renovation, and innovation. As awareness of indoor plant benefits continues to grow, these awards celebrate the strides of interior plantscapers to connect people with plants in remarkable ways.


Check out the slideshow above for a look at some of last year’s winners.

Entries are judged on their own merit rather than against each other, which means that the best and the brightest all shine together. Award winners earn a designation of gold or platinum based on points scored from information and photos provided. Certain submissions may be awarded the coveted Diamond and Emerald judges’ awards for the best overall entries.

Award submissions are judged by a panel of distinguished plantscapers who serve on the AmericanHort Interior Plantscape Community. Award recipients find that the honor becomes a selling point with current and future customers.

Submission categories and details are:
— Categories whose installation must have been completed during the past year (May 2016 to April 2017) are Special Event and Holiday; Silk, Replica and Preserved; Horticultural Service; and Technician Recognition.
— Categories whose installation may have been completed during the past two years (May 2015 to April 2017) are: Design; Installation; Major Renovation; Atrium and Conservatory; Living Wall; and Patio, Balcony, and Roof Garden.
— A single project may be entered in multiple categories when appropriate. If the same project is entered in more than one category, a separate entry form and fee must be submitted.
— Projects that have previously received an International Plantscape Award may not be re-entered in the same category.

The International Plantscape Awards will be presented during Cultivate’18, held July 14-17 in Columbus, OH. The presentation ceremony is a celebration of the interior plantscape community’s accomplishments and of hopes for even bigger and bolder achievements in the future.
