BFA Industry Awards 2024: Nominations are Open!

The BFA Awards has been created to highlight and celebrate all the dedicated and hard working people that make up the floral industry. Its intention is to raise the awareness of our skills, celebrate achievements and create an amazing opportunity to connect to the public.

Year on year this awards ceremony has grown and become an eagerly anticipated event. Each category has its own set of criteria for entry and the winners marks are made up of a panel of industry experts as well as public vote. It truly represents the best of the best and we are proud to showcase the work of all involved.

This year we are a little starting the awards a little earlier than usual as our FleurEx trade event is now in September. Starting the nomination process in April means we can all still enjoy a whole month of promotion, voting and judging, giving our industry and your customers some real exposure to what amazing professionals you truly are.
