 HELPFUL INFORMATION from ARS Guidelines for Rose Arrangements

TRADITIONAL DESIGNS

Traditional Line Design:  Line compositions require restraint in the amount of plant material used.  Flowers and foliage are pruned to clarify the line. Traditional Line designs are simple. The line may be vertical, horizontal, crescent. Creativity is shown in the choice and use of plant materials, line formation,  colors, textures, and container.

Traditional Mass Design:  Mass designs have a closed silhouette, yet plant materials are not crowded. Some materials may extend beyond the basic shape of the design.  Each bloom is distinct.  Mass designs are symmetrical and can be oval, circular, fan-shaped, or triangular. Materials radiate from the focal area.

Modern Design:In Modern designs arrangers have freedom to express their ideas in creative designs where the keynote is simplicity with emphasis on color, form, texture and the all- important element of space. The arranger may manipulate or abstract any plant material except the rose bloom(s).

Modern Spatial Thrust Design:  Spatial Thrust Designs have two parallel placements of like materials with a volume of vacant space between them creating a feeling of thrust.

Page 22

Designs in the East Asian Manner:  Designs based on the Japanese art of flower arranging, but not necessarily following the strict rules of Ikebana. Designs may be classical, naturalistic or free style and show restraint in use of plant material.

Miniature Designs:  May use Miniature or Miniflora roses, but not together in the same design.  Designs not to exceed 10” in width, depth, or height. The principles of proportion and scale are of foremost importance in all aspects of miniature designs especially the container, roses,and other plant material. The background should be in pleasing proportion to the size of the design.

Table Classes:  Basic requirements are a dish, a drinking vessel and a rose arrangement.  Other components such as napkins may be used. There should be visually pleasing relationships of the materials to the space provided and to each other.  Use appropriate scale so the tray does not appear crowded or bare.

Dried Roses:  Form and color are the two most important qualities in the condition and perfection of dried roses. Maintaining the natural form of roses presents the most difficult problem in drying.

Dried roses cannot be dyed or treated with preservatives. Whether the arranger uses air drying, freeze drying, silica gel, a microwave, or a dehydrator, the judge sees only the final product and must evaluate accordingly.

Suggestions for exhibitors: 

Read the 2019 Revised ARS Guidelines for Judging Rose Arrangements.

Note: Oriental is now East Asian.

DIVISION III - PHOTOGRAPHY

Photography Division Rules & Information

The show will be governed by the standard rules, regulations and guidelines of the American Rose Society. 

For details see Guidelines & Rules for Judging Rose Photography (11/2020). 


New:  Side Buds are now a potential penalization. One or more side buds in classes where side buds were formerly not permitted (one bloom per stem and open bloom hybrid teas, grandifloras, minifloras, and miniatures) are not a disqualification, they are a fault in stem and foliage in these classes and are penalized only to the degree of distraction, if any.

2.  Photography entries must be pre-registered by 8 pm., Wednesday, October 27, 2021.  Contact Jean Miller tjmsc51@yahoo.com or telephone at (530) 514-4857

PRIME ELEMENTS of PHOTOGRAPHY JUDGING

The approach to perfection in a rose photograph is judged on five qualities.

1.  Conformance:  The photograph follows the rules of this schedule and  the class in which the exhibit is entered. 

2.  Composition:  Includes color quality, lack of distraction, contrast, balance, viewpoint, framing of the subject, direction of movement and diagonals where applicable. The point of interest should be the roses(s).



3.  Technique:  Correct exposure, sharp focus for main subject, depth of field and other relevant technical factors.



4.  Distinction:  Distinction is something that sets a photograph apart from others in its class.  Everything about the photograph is well done.

5.  Specific Criteria: The Rose (Bloom or Spray) – When judging a photograph of a horticultural specimen, many of the rules in the ARS Guidelines & Rules for Judging Roses will be utilized.

The Rose Arrangement – When judging a photograph of a rose arrangement, the rules in the ARS Guidelines for Judging Rose Arrangements will be utilized.

The Rose Garden – Public gardens MUST be named. Roses should dominate within the photograph, and the fact that the flowers are  roses should be obvious.

Creative Interpretation – The photograph should demonstrate originality and creativity. Photo-editing software may be used for enhancement. Creative namingof the exhibit is part of the creative interpretation of the exhibit.Individual rose varieties need not be identified on the entry tag for this class.

Macro - The photograph should be an extreme close-up of any part of the rose or rose plant. Color, Black & White, Sepia, or combinations of these are permitted in this class.

Novice Photographers – Many times when judging a novice class, the judge is a little more lenient with the rules, but the same principles as listed above still apply.
