The most important thing about putting entries in the Canungra Show on 20th August, is to read the classes carefully in the Show Schedule.
Entries are judged on criteria which is uniform across all shows. Present your exhibit exactly as it is stated in the schedule. For example, in the cooking section points may be deducted if you have decorated your cake to make it look pretty when in fact your cake is judged on the taste. The schedule will tell you what, if any, decoration is required. If you have any questions contact the Chief Steward beforehand.
Fill out the entry form in the Show schedule or on our web page. If you need help we can give this to you when you bring in your entries. Take your entires to the Showground between 1pm and 6.30pm on Friday 19th August.
Each Section has prizes for the Most Successful Exhibitor and Champion Exhibit. There are also other special prizes for particular classes with details in the Show Schedule. However, any exhibitor will tell you it is for the fun of exhibiting and not the prize.
The Canungra Show has two Pavilions – the Arts and Craft Pavilion and the Main Pavilion. We have around 1,000 entries each year and invite everyone to start exhibiting. Judging is done on Friday night and the pavilions are open on Show day from 9am until 7pm. Exhibits can be collected on Sunday between 9.30am and 10.30pm.
If you would like to help on Friday afternoon taking exhibits and displaying them; or can assist in the pavilions on Saturday or Sunday please contact the Show Secretary on 0434 274 795 prior to the Show. We will welcome anyone who would like to help.
