Curator, Judy Dunstan, says the theme, ‘Symbiosis’, reflects the natural world, which is full of extraordinary relationships — from mutually beneficial partnerships, to ‘parasitism’, which can have deadly results.”

“All selected works must accurately represent the form and botany of the chosen subject, adequately convey the characteristics of the species or variety, and be pleasing, balanced and considered works of art.”
