Virtual Orchid Judging Educational Exercise was created to:
Help maintain the skills of American Orchid Society (AOS) judges and students by learning and practicing using a variety of resources including but not limited to OrchidPro, RHS International Orchid Register, and WCSP (Kew).
Unite the AOS judges by allowing them to participate regardless of the Judging Center location, invite orchid experts and orchid judges from around the world.
Serve the local and remote orchid communities by allowing non-judge exhibitors to submit plants and participate in all discussions.
Virtually judge plants with short living flowers that will be difficult to display at in-person orchid judging.
Virtual Judging is an educational exercise and is not considered AOS official judging.
What are the guidelines?
Exhibitor to send at least 3 pictures, video, plant measurements and all required information via email.
Post new candidate on VirtualOrchids.org and notify all participants via email on Monday.
Participants to review all plant information using OrchidPro, WCSP, and RHS International Orchid Register and send comments via email by Sunday.
Please don't forget to include your recommendation for nomination, award type and point range (if applicable).
Comments summarized and posted on VirtualOrchids.org on Sunday night.
