Trouble Free Virtual Iris Show

If you have participated in an AIS judged iris show, you know it's not easy.  That perfect iris from your garden needs to be carefully cut, transported with extreme care and look as lovely as it did in the garden.  Inevitably a bloom that looks great the night before is starting to curl, a standard snaps off in the car and or your attempt to make the specimen perfectly straight leads to disaster.  That's just part of showing an iris and winning that coveted best of show, you say?

Enter the first virtual iris show sponsored by the AIS.  Just take four photos: one side view, one top
view, one stalk view and a glamour shot.

Here are AIS examples in the directions for entry of those 4 shots with an iris tectorum as subject:

Side View
Top View
Stalk View
"Glamour Shot" Artistic View
Entries are being accepted now through July 31.  Judging will conclude August 15.
Will this be the first and only annual virtual iris show?  I am sure it will be greeted with mixed reviews.
