About BAWW - 2025

On the 18th May 2025 Botanical Art societies from around the world are coming together to celebrate the medium of botanical art with a truly international exhibition.   This exhibition follows the highly successful, inaugural,


World Wide Day of Botanical Art - 18th May 2018


For the 2025 exhibition, over 21 countries have expressed an interest in exhibiting some of the best botanical art you will see.  The 2025 focus will be on a theme of "Crop Diversity"


“ The exhibition will focus on and celebrate, biodiversity in the crops that have been closely associated with

the human species over thousands of years.” 

The Association of Botanical Artists is coordinating the British exhibition in collaboration with :

The Society of Botanical Artists

Birmingham Society of Botanical Artists,

Wales Society of Botanical Illustrators

Eden Project Florilegium Society 


and will develop and host a section of the international exhibition for 2025.  Scotland will be managing and hosting their own exhibition.


Artists who are resident outside of Britain will be eligible to exhibit in their country of residence or nearest participating country.  If you would like more information about your countries' participation you can contact the international organisers directly USING THIS LINK.

Any botanical artists resident in Northern Ireland, England and Wales can enter through the British group and you do not have to belong to a botanical art society. 


Artwork for this exhibition will be subject to selection by a panel of distinguished judges and chosen pieces will be exhibited in the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists - Gallery, Birmingham, United Kingdom.


Artwork will be simultaneously exhibited in the ABA online gallery to be viewed by an international audience.

Further information will be provided as it is becomes available but you can download the Exhibition Information Pack which contains details of the Theme and also the specific Exhibition Criteria.  There will be a series of live online Q&A Sessions and other events hosted by the Steering Committee to help you choose your subject.

If you think you might like to submit your work for this exhibition we would love to have you register your expression of interest via the link at the top of the page (residents of Northern Ireland, England and Wales only).  This will also enable the Steering Committee to keep you up to date as new information becomes available. 

We are excited about working with our national and international friends to make this exhibition one to remember.
