The heats of the YFCU’s annual floral art competition sponsored by Tesco recently took place in venues throughout Northern Ireland with members being tasked to produce a creative floral arrangement to depict the theme ‘Rich Pickings’.

At each heat competitors were given just one hour to complete their floral decoration.

Artificial, fresh or dried material could be used in the decoration and all arrangements had to be constructed on the evening.

The arrangements were marked out of 100 in the following categories: choice of materials (30); presentation (30) and finally technical skills displayed (40).

The judges congratulated everyone on their imaginative and interesting interpretations of the theme.

They had a difficult task marking the entries, allowing just the top member in each age group of each area to go through to the final, which will be held at Balmoral Show.
