Margaret Flockton Award Prizes 2020
Most taxonomic botanical illustrators enter this award competition because of the credibility "awarded" to those selected for the exhibition. This is, of course, enhanced for all those who win the award or come second or get a "highly commended"
However the cash award for this international botanical illustration competition are significant.
In addition this Award brings additional benefits. First it is low cost
Plus you can also sell a print of your illustration direct to interested parties with no commission deducted. Those selected for the exhibition can sell prints of their work direct from their websites or email addresses to the public and collectors (meaning no commission is deducted by RBGS).
Overall it's a "win win" award for all concerned!
