2018 Mayesh Design Star Contest

It's that time of year again - enter to become our 2018 Mayesh Design Star! We are looking for that special someone to headline a series of four US workshops and 1 international workshop, as well as create monthly design videos to share with our community.

So how is this going to work? To enter, you will need to submit a detailed outline for a 1-day workshop, a design portfolio, and a short video showcasing your sparkling personality. We don’t want to put too many parameters around the entry materials as we don’t want to limit your imagination. You are an artist and we want you to be just that!

We will interview our top choices and then select our favorite designer for the job. The 2018 tour schedule will consist of four workshops at select US cities throughout the country and 1 international workshop in Quito, Ecuador! In addition to headlining a national and international flower workshop tour, the winner will receive a percentage of the revenue collected from the workshop registrations, with a potential of bringing home up to $10,000 or more!

Mayesh will continue producing Mayesh Design Star videos which make up the bulk of our 2.7 million video views! We will help you create twelve brand new floral design videos to share your inspiration and passion with the world! Keep in mind you will be talking to groups of enthusiastic flower design lovers at each workshop and we want you to be comfortable doing so. Whether you are an industry veteran who has been involved with workshops and teaching for years or you would like to get into the workshop scene, but just haven’t done it yet, we think this is an amazing opportunity to spread your design wings.

Here’s a snapshot on how this year’s contest will work (see full contest rules below):

  • Submit a short personality packed selfie-style video introducing yourself along with a 1-day workshop outline and a link to view a portfolio of your work below.
  • After interviewing the top candidates, a panel of Mayesh judges will select 1 winner; this year we will consider teams of 2.
