The HMAA Laurel Awards recognise writers, photographers, educators, researchers, and broadcasters who have demonstrated exceptional creativity in communicating the benefits and joys of gardening to the community.
The Laurels began back in 2000 – a brief history appears here.
In the 21st century, it doesn’t matter whether your words exist on a piece of paper or a file in the cloud; it doesn’t matter whether you work for a TV station or shot your YouTube video on a phone.
What matters is what you have to say and how you say it.
We write, we talk and we present to entertain and educate people of all ages about the joys and benefits of gardening. This is our craft, and the 2018 HMAA Laurels are unashamedly craft based.
Changes have been made to the categories and the number of entries a member may submit in each since 2016
