Honey Gift Arrangement/Boxes

 

Calling all creative people – this is the perfect vehicle to unleash your creative spirit and present a beautiful gift basket of honey products. Your basket must be a collection of items that comes from keeping bees. In preparing your entry it needs to include a range of products whether they are handmade or commercially manufactured (not just one type of product). That would include for example, honey, beeswax, propolis and pollen.

 

This competition is about beautiful presentation and open to everyone. This is not a commercial class in the sense that it is not about presenting a range of products produced by one company; rather it’s about creativity, presentation and bringing all of that together in a basket or box with a multiple of products. The arrangements will be showcased during Conference. Please ensure all gift arrangements are covered, eg in cellophane.

 

For our first year of this new competition, there will be one overall winner based on a number of factors including:

  • General appearance and presentation
  • Originality
  • Quality of honey & products
  • Variety of products

 

Entries will be accepted from all those who attend the 2019 ApiNZ National Conference.
