Industry Winners announced at Vision '21

As always, Florist Magazine attended the BFA weekend. Not only the place for some interesting talks …. the Editor came back with a heap of notes!!! … but the place where both top students were recognised and the winners of the BFA Industry Awards announced.

Now in their 6th year, the Awards recognise all parts of the industry and whilst the majority are selected via a public vote, the categories for the florist website and shop of the year are based on 50% votes and 50% judge’s panel.

Not everyone could be there to receive their trophy but we bring you all the winners and pictures of those who were.
