Shohin Open Pot Competition
A beautiful pot makes all the difference to the aesthetics of a bonsai. Therefore to increase and support the awareness of our fantastic Australian potters, we are proud to announce the Shohin Pot competition, open to all Australian ceramic artists. Other than the pot being suitable for use with a Shohin bonsai the pot must have an Australian aesthetic.

To attract exceptional entries, in addition to a great trophy we are offering an attractive prize pool:
• 1st Place $400
• 2nd Place $150
• 3rd Place $ 75
Please refer to the following document for further details.
