I do not see why not winning an award should keep an iris off the symposium. 
If the award system were perfect, then maybe this would be justified. As it 
stands many iris that do not win HMs are as good as many who do (and better 
than some). Awards are about distribution. A mediocre variety with a large 
distribution is certain to win over a good one with poor distribution. We 
should all learn that low HMs awarded to varieties which have been 
distributed by the hundreds are not likely to be very good. Likewise, a low 
number of votes on a variety with a distribution of a few dozen could be very 
nice indeed.
