The American Iris Society (AIS) provides opportunities for members and the general public to display, view, have judged, and receive recognition for iris they have grown, entered, and displayed in an AIS approved show. Entries in an AIS Show are evaluated by AIS accredited judges. The following explains the recognition that can be awarded to irises displayed at an AIS iris show which includes ribbons, rosettes, medals, and certificates.






Show Ribbons

As the judges evaluate the irises entered in the show ribbons may be awarded.

  • Award Ribbons may be awarded by AIS Judges designating the quality of the presentation of specimens in the horticulture section. Entries compete by registered variety or published botanical name.
    • A Blue Ribbon denotes a First Place displaying a high quality of cultural perfection for that variety and excellent grooming and presentation. Only one blue ribbon is awarded per variety and then only if the specimen meets that standard. (Note in Canada the blue and red ribbons are reversed)
    • A Red Ribbon denotes Second Place or a specimen that does not quite meet the highest standard.
    • A White Ribbon designates Third Place.
    • A Pink Ribbon is often given as an Honorable Mention, as a thank you to the exhibiter for making the effort and providing a specimen that meets the essential qualifying criteria.





Best Specimen of Show Rosette

After the judges have evaluted all of the entries they make further selections of those specimens that represent "Best Of" qualities. Rosettes are awarded to the "Best Of" specimen entries.

  • A Best Specimen of Section small purple rosette, and a certificate, is awarded to the best speicmens of each section represented in the show.
  • A Best Specimen of Show large purple rosette, and a certificate, is awarded to the entry the judges select as the overall best specimen exhibited at the show. (Much as the name suggests, it is the best presentation of an Iris variety in the show, being well grown (horticulture 75%} and presented well (Condition & Grooming 25%).
  • A Youth Best Specimen of Show small purple rosette, and a certificate, may be awarded to the entry the judges select as the overall best youth specimen exhibited at the show if there is a Youth Division.
  • A Best Seedling of Show large purple rosette, and an Exhibition Certificate, may be awarded to the seedling selected as the Best Seedling of Show by the judges. Exhibition Certificates may also be awarded to any seedling receiving five or more votes from fully accredited AIS judges attending the show.

Rosettes, medals, and certifcates may also be awarded as noted below:

  • A Horticultural Sweepstakes large purple rosette, a Silver Medal, and a certificate may be awarded to the exhibitor receiving the most first-place ribbons.
