For Ikebana Artists

Can I join this project as an Ikebana artist?

Yes. If you are a qualified ikebana teacher and would like to join this project, please apply by sending us a form by 31 December 2022. 

If your application is successful, you will receive a request in early February 2023, and you will be asked to submit your work by 31 May 2023. 


1. You will be listed in our directory for about a year, if you request.

2. Your work will be included in the Hanadayori Youtube video and photo book.     

3. We welcome applications from those who intended to exhibit at Wa Ikebana Exhibition, but could not do so for various reasons.  

4. Quality of photo is very important for this project. Poor quality photos may not be accepted for publication.  

5. Ikebana artists (qualified teachers) can join this project for free, and there is no remuneration for joining. They will not receive a copy of the photobook for free, but they can order a copy or more from Blurb.

6. About eBook. A company we were planing to use to publish our eBook, Hanadayori suddenly announced to stop their service. We still hope to put out our eBook (or photo book) in 2023 using another company. But we may not be able to sell the book through major online book sellers.   

7. Profit, if any, from this project will be applied for the running costs of Melbourne Ikebana Festival.
