Applications are being taken now for our new Fantasy award
A member of staff will advise you if your application has been successful or not as soon as the judges have come to a decision.
All judges are informed by email immediately when an application is accepted by the Admin for consideration by the panel.
Judging will take place over a period of one calendar month from the date the application is accepted.
If your application is successful, you will be issued with a logo and a certificate. You can collect from this forum, either from the LOGOS thread or the Gallery above.Your award will have an issue date on and a review date. Your certificate and Logo is valid for 2 years from the date of issue. We will then ask for a review of your work, which will mean that we will ask you to supply us with new photos for the judges to assess. Showing an award after your review date has expired, will not be valid.
If you cannot find your award, please contact Julie via PM.
When you submit your applications for a PRA*ISE award, please leave you FULL name and Nursery name so we can make your logo as soon as possible.
PLEASE NOTE: The work must be 100% your own - if someone else does your rooting or painting, please do not apply.
Applying couldn't be easier.
Please post photos of your work in the PHOTO APPLICATIONS thread, as per the criteria below. Admin Staff reserve the right to refuse applications that do not meet the criteria
Once your application has been picked up by one of the staff they will ask you for ten addresses, either e-mail,FB or ebay id of past customers who can verify your work. You should send them via PM for safety reasons to whomever picked up your application. PRA*ISE Administrators will contact them for a testimonial of your work.
When sending in your photos please remember that we can only judge on what we see...there is no need to rush to fill the criteria, we are not going anywhere. Take your time and only apply when you have the required amount of photographs. We have a lot of people fail because they send in photos of old work to FILL UP their application, they fail because the work from the old photos is not up to their new standard. Remember....please send in the best photos of your best work.
