Local Awards

We run the annual Beautiful Perth Awards, with categories for residents, businesses and community projects in the Fair City. Entries for the 2019 Awards are now welcome - click here to learn how to enter. 

The 2017 Awards saw certicates and trophies presnted to entrants whose floral displays, gardens and projects helped improve our local environment and quality of life. The 2017 Category Winners were Care Homes: Kincarrathie House; Hotels: Parklands; Pubs & Clubs: The Sandeman; Commercial Premises: People with a Mission Ministries; B&B/Guest Houses: Woodlea Guest House; It's Your Neighbourhood project: Perth Station Garden; Nursery/Primary School: Letham PS; School: Fairview; Senior Citizen's Front Garden: Ricky Martin; Annual Bedding: James Lister; Residential Front Garden: Keith Robinson; Endeavour Award: Perth Station Garden; Best Overall Garden: James Lister; Gannochy Garden Award: Mr & Mrs Pennycook; Gannochy Patio Garden Award: Catherine Robertson. Provost Dennis Melloy presented the certificates and trophies to the Beautiful Perth Award winners, and Gannochy Trust Chairman Dr James Kynaston made the presentations for the Gannochy Trust Awards.

The awards are based on the Royal Horticultural Society’s system of giving bronze, silver, silver gilt and gold awards to reflect different levels of achievement, and certificates are awarded to all successful entrants. The winner of each category also receives a trophy, and there two special Awards – the Endeavour trophy for the entry judged to have made the greatest community impact, and the Rosebowl for best overall garden. Beautiful Perth judges also help assess the Gannochy Trust 2017 Gannochy Garden Awards. 

The category winners are pictured below at the Awards Ceremony, with Provost Melloy of Perth & Kniross Council and our Chairman John Summers. A gallery of photographs from the Awards Ceremony can be found on our Flickr site.
