Update on Potential Bonsai/Pejing For Loan To the National Bonsai And Penjing Collection Of Australia

Now is the time for Queensland Bonsai Artists to showcase their talents and have their Bonsai or Penjing on display in Canberra and visited by over hundreds of thousands of visitors a year.

The NBPCA have announced that the return of Bonsai and Penjing on loan from Queensland will be returned in November 2018.
At the same time they will be collecting a new intake of Bonsai and Penjing from Queensland Bonsai Artists for loan to the NBPCA for a term of 18 months.

How does it work?

Artists are invited to submit their Bonsai – Penjing in the form of photographs on the attached form, direct to Curator of the National Bonsai and Penjing Collection of Australia, Leigh Taafe, ( )

The entries are then assessed by members of the Selection Advisory Committee, who represent all states of Australia. Bonsai are collected from a central point in the Brisbane area and transported with the greatest care by customised vehicle to Canberra.

So, start thinking about what Bonsai in your collection you would like submitted for loan – start grooming them now!!!
