The Romford Business Improvement District (BID) previously installed 124 hanging baskets in the town centre to try and support shops and restaurants as they reopened.
It also worked with Havering Council to set up a living wall and planters to bring more colour to the area.
Iain Boulton visited Romford yesterday to examine the entries and judge whether they had significantly improved the town centre.
He spent two hours talking with BID director Julie Frost, chair Tom Stobbart and Cllr Judith Holt about the recent projects.
Julie admitted winning an award would be a “big vote of confidence” in their plans.
She said: “I want to help Romford to shake off the enforced lethargy of the past eighteen months and unleash all that pent up creative/entrepreneurial energy that has made our town so famous.
“A London in Bloom award would announce that we are very much BACK!”
Cllr Holt said: “It is wonderful to see the way these floral displays have enhanced and brightened up Romford.
“I look forward to continuing to work with Romford BID, especially to promote the heritage of Romford.”
