FAIS 2012 Show

The American Iris Society (AIS) provides opportunities for members and the general public to display, view, have judged and receive recognition for iris they have grown, entered, and displayed in an AIS approved show. The following explains the recognition that can be awarded to irises displayed at an AIS iris show which includes rosettes, ribbons, medals, and certificates.

* Best Specimen of Show; Much as the name suggests; It is the best presentation of an Iris variety in the show; being well grown (horticulture 75%} and presented well (Condition & Grooming 25%).

  • Award Ribbons: Ribbons are given designating the quality of the presentation of specimens in the horticulture section. These compete by registered variety or published botanical name.
    • A Blue Ribbon denotes a high quality of cultural perfection for that variety and excellent grooming and presentation. Only one blue ribbon is awarded per variety and then only if the specimen meets that standard. (Note in Canada the blue and red ribbons are reversed)
    • Red Ribbons denotes second place or a specimen that does not quite meet the highest standard.
    • White Ribbons designate third place, and often a pink ribbon is given as an honorable mention, as a thank you to the exhibiter for making the effort and providing a specimen that meets the essential qualifying criteria.
  • Exhibition Cetificates: Recognize Best Seedling whether it is a named cultivar or a seedling number. They are also awarded for seedlings receiving 5 votes from judges attending the show or shows where it is shown that year.
  • Medals:
    • Silver Medal of AIS is available for presentation to the exhibitor winning the most first-place award ribbons (blue) jn the horticultural Division of the show, provided the show has at least twenty cultivars exhibited by at least five exhibitors for a spring show and at least ten cultivars by at least three exhibitors for a fall show.
    • Bronze Medal of AIS is available for presentation to the exhibitor winning the second most first-place award ribbons provided the show qualifies for the Silver Medal in its size.
  • Rosettes; AIS rosettes may be presented for exhibits of unusual merit in all divisions. Awarding of a Section certificate/rosette requires at least three exhibitors and at least five cultivars in the section.
