The new Landscape Showcase series will allow the institute to identify and celebrate students and those recently qualified involved in exciting projects or competitions.

Landscape Institute president Noel Farrer commented: "There is a huge amount of talent coming up the ranks and this is a great way to highlight the rising stars of the future as well as inspiring those thinking about a career in landscape architecture."

The new website acts as an information resource about becoming a landscape architect and is aimed at school leavers, undergraduates, post-graduates and career changers. As well as providing details of how to study in the UK and abroad it includes inspirational content about working in the profession.

Bethany Williams and Stuart Charles Towner have been selected as the first 'Landscape Showcase' profiles to appear on the careers website. The pair won Gold and Best in Show at Hampton Court for their 'Green Seam' show garden.

The Landscape Showcase will be an on-going feature on the website. Next month the winning team behind Theatrum Mundi's Designing the Urban Commons ideas competition will be featured.
