Category: My favorite plant
“My favorite plant” winner entry belongs to Rebecca Hayes (@BigGirlPlants). A beautiful embroidery inspired by her studies on pollen transfer networks.
Category: Plants that will save the world
“Plants that will save the world” awarded entry belongs to the (obviously) very talented Ana Valladares (@AnaPValladares). Very impressive maize inspired collage.
Category: Plant science in action
And last but not least, “Plant science in action“. This category was particularly difficult to decide. Finally, Charlotte’s Pain (@Charly_Pain) entry was chosen: a visually impactful GIF of a tobacco endoplasmic reticulum that shows that lab work and art are much closer than you might initially think.
