New Talent Competion British Final 14 October
Held at Capel Manor Autumn Show

New Talent Competition Final for 2013


The final of this year's New Talent Competition to decide who would represent the U.K. at the European Final in Audincourt, France, took place this last Sunday at the Capel Manor Bonsai Exhibition. One of the finalists had sadly to withdraw, but the final was a close competition between Michael Poleviak from Yorkshire and Marcus Watts from South Wales, both working on Korean-grown J. chinensis. Judged by John Armitage and Steve McKee


The competition was won by Marcus who will now be competing against candidates from the other 19 European countries who make up the European Bonsai Association membership.


We wish him every success next March.
