Margaret Flockton Award Exhibition

The Margaret Flockton Award is unique amongst international art awards, focusing exclusively on contemporary scientific botanical illustration.

Illustrators from around the world submit scientifically accurate drawings that accompany the published taxonomic description of the plant, clearly highlighting all of the distinctive features of the species. Original taxonomic illustrations are highly detailed black and white drawings primarily undertaken in pen and ink, pencil or digitally rendered.

The Margaret Flockton Award commemorates the contribution Margaret Flockton made to Australian scientific botanical illustration. The Maple Brown Family and the Foundation & Friends of the Botanic Gardens sponsor this annual, international award for excellence in scientific botanical illustration.

Please note some works are for sale from the artists. For further information regarding sales please call (02) 9231 8111 or email
