Although many members continue to vote for the older cultivars, the intended purpose of the award is to encourage hybridizers and recognize outstanding recent introductions.

The official results of the judge's voting for 2017 pertaining to Louisiana Irises are:

The Mary Swords DeBaillon Medal - 144 votes cast - one winner

'Our Friend Dick' - 29 votes - by Ron Killingsworth
