International Garden Festival issues call for proposals for 2016

The International Garden Festival, presented at the Jardins de Métis / Reford Gardens in the Gaspésie region of Québec, is preparing its 17th edition and is issuing an international call for proposals to select designers who will create the new temporary gardens that will be presented from June 23, 2016.

The installations selected by the jury should have a special energy and connection to the natural world. The temporary gardens should have a degree of interactivity that encourages visitors to enter with enthusiasm. The goal is to intrigue visitors with the unusual or to impress by new ways of presenting what is common.

This call for proposals is open to all landscape architects, architects and multidisciplinary teams from Canada and abroad. For complete information on this call for proposals, those interested should consult the web site:

The deadline for the submission of entries is MONDAY NOVEMBER 16, 2015 at 5 pm EST.
