Margaret Flockton Award 2012

Entries for the 2012 Margaret Flockton Award are due on Monday 6th February 2012.

The award is run by the Friends of the Botanic Gardens Sydney and commemorates the contribution Margaret Flockton made to Australian scientific botanical illustration.

It is an interesting award in that only black and white illustrations are permitted and the focus is on producing a publication quality scientifically detailed illustration. Works are judged on accurate interpretation and portrayal of plant characters and diagnostic features, technical merit, reproducibility, composition and artistic merit.
