Question:       Can I submit  student work completed in 2009 if I am currently a student?

 

Answer:       Yes, as long as you were a Student Member of the SGD studying Garden Design or

                   Landscape Architecture when you completed the the work submitted and are either a

                   current Student Member of the SGD or have progressed to Pre-Registered Member status

                   of the SGD between 18th May 2012 and 12th August 2013.

 

Question:       Can I Submit multiple entries?

 

Answer:         Yes, as long as you pay for each entry

 

Question:       Does the Garden have to have been built?

 

Answer:         No

 

Question:       Can I clarify the requirements for the student awards?

                      1. I take it any size garden or brief is acceptable?

                      2. There's no mention of a planting plan - but presumably this is essential among the 3

                          additional documents?

                      3. I take it construction drawings aren't mandatory?

                      4. Is a concept board admissible among the additional documents?

 

Answer:         We want to see what you can do.  So there is no brief, no size, no limits. The key issue for

                   the supporting documents is clarity.  The judges are looking for clearly and concisely

                   presented information.  It is up to you to chose the supporting 3 documents that you

                   consider you need to submit to explain your scheme.  This might include; a planting plan,

                   construction detailing, perspectives, isometrics – but there is no prescriptive list .  A

                   concept board is admissible. Remember everything should be on your disk.

 

Question:       I am intending to forward the 4 elements listed below:

                               X1 Presentation plan, X1 sheet of construction drawings,

                               X2 elevations (showing x2 completely different areas of the garden)

                   However, could a mood board, giving a flavour of the planting, replace one of the

                   elevations? Or would I need a more accurate planting plan?

 

Answer:         The key issue for the supporting documents is clarity.  The judges are looking for clearly

                   and concisely presented information.  It is up to you to choose the supporting 3

                   documents that you consider you need to submit to explain your scheme.  This might

                   include; a planting plan, construction detailing, perspectives, isometrics - but there is no

                   prescriptive list. A concept board is admissible. Remember everything should be on your

                   disk.
