Judges Training is a unique way of learning about irises from experienced dedicated judges, growers, and hybridizers who have studied constantly, have visited gardens throughout the country, and have grown a representative collection of irises.
These accredited judges are the backbone of the American Iris Society judging program that select award winning irises each year. It is their voting that determines which irises receive awards, and therefore, which irises will be recommended to the public.
But even if you are not training to be a judge, you will probably still be very interested in hearing from the experts that are providing this year’s judges training. In Austin Hooker Nichols, AIS Emeritus Judge, will present a 3-hour course on both in-garden and exhibition judging of Louisiana irises. You can learn how to win that Best of Show award by finding out what the judges are looking for in a Louisiana Iris.
