2020 Mayesh Design Star Video Series Contest

MDS-Contest-Blog-01

 


Eight years ago, Mayesh decided to try something new and launched a little contest to find their first Mayesh Design Star. Over time, we have worked with amazing designers, changed up the program every so often, and have helped bring flowers, design, and knowledge to floral designers across the globe. Fast forward from 2011 to today and this one small idea launched us into video production, which in turn has resulted with a library of over 500 videos with views nearing 5,000,000! Last year we decided to forgo the contest in lieu of hand selecting this year's designer, but we heard feedback from many that really wanted a chance to throw their hat into the ring and earn a spot in front of the Mayesh community to bring back the contest.

With that said, I want to let you know that we are going back to our roots by hosting a contest and having this year's winner focus solely on videos.

The time has come!! We are officially launching a search for our 2020 Mayesh Design Star! If you have dreamed about becoming a Mayesh Design Star, this is your chance to do just that! Be sure to have your entry in by August 31st. Scroll down to read the details and use the button to enter.
