Botanical Images Scotia (BISCOT) has recently called for Assessment Entries from artists for its 2018 exhibition - which is the Scottish equivalent of the RHS Botanical Art Exhibition in London.
This post summarises key points about the exhibition and the process. It's a summary and hence not definitive. You need to read all information published by BISCOT on its website for the definitive version.
