Bedaya Centre launches flower competition

(MENAFN- Gulf Times) The Bedaya Centre for Entrepreneurship and Career Development (Bedaya Centre), in collaboration with L'ETO Café, has launched a competition for the best flower arrangement for local entrepreneurs working in the field of floristry.
The competition, which runs until January 12, is open to participants who own such a business for at least six months with either a commercial registration or licence to conduct domestic business (work from home), Bedaya Centre has said in a statement.
To take part in the competition, which is hosted by L'ETO Café, participants can upload photographs of previously done arrangements on the dedicated website - https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/leto-flowers
All photographs must be submitted by January 12, the organisers have said.
Following the submission, four candidates will be shortlisted for the finals to attend a workshop on L'ETO Café and the concept behind it to ensure that the submitted flower arrangements for the competition are in line with the café's concept.
Each participant will be granted a week-long opportunity to display his or her arrangements at the L'ETO Café table where guests and customers can vote to select the winning candidate. The winning entry will be granted a month's contract for supplying L'ETO Café with flower arrangements.
Reem al-Sowaidi, general manager of Bedaya Centre, said: 'The floristry profession is a common occupation among local entrepreneurs, especially women. From our side, we do our best to support local projects to put them on the right track by providing them with a unique experience and opportunity to showcase their products at one of the leading coffee houses in town - L'ETO Café, where guests and judges can assess their arrangements and select the winner from the finalists.
'By joining hands with L'ETO Café, we were able to give one local entrepreneur the opportunity to be awarded with a one-month-long contract to supply them with flower arrangements. At the same time, other participating entrepreneurs will get a motivation to improve their performance.
Salem al-Athba and Hassan al-Maadid, owners of L'ETO Café in Qatar, said 'such an initiative aims to support local entrepreneurs by giving them the opportunity to highlight the best of all participants and provide them with an overview of the nature of their work so that they can compete in the local market.
Al-Athba and al-Maadid stressed that they were 'pleased to be a part of this innovative initiative and looked forward to working with Bedaya in future as well.
