Q Corner Live Column Competition - the results!

I just wanted to take the opportunity to congratulate everyone that took part in the recent Q Corner Live Column Competition. Competing live in front of your peers is definitely not easy, but it certainly is a great and rewarding challenge! 

Fourteen balloon professionals from around the world came together during a Q Corner Show.  Through the power of the internet, and some technical know-how from Keith and Dominic - The Boys of Q Corner, they created their own unique columns during a 'live' 60 minutes window. 

The competitors were required to follow these simple rules:

  • Only Qualatex® or Northstar balloons can be used, including latex rounds and non-rounds, Microfoil®, and Bubble balloons. 
  • The arrangement should be air-filled only, please do not include any helium-filled balloons.
  • Accessories such as flowers, greenery, ribbons and other decorative items can be used, however balloons should represent at least 70% of the design.
  • No balloons can be pre-inflated prior to the start of the competition.
  • Should you wish to add Fantasy Flowers, these may be pre-made and used within your design.
  • The design should be suitable to be displayed on a table.

Here is the winning design as voted by a judging panel made up of Cam Woody, Luc Bertrand, Eve Antonello, and Sue Bowler. Also featured is the People's Choice winner as awarded by a public vote and of course all the other fantastic entries too!

And the winner is....
