The many categories available to entrants have various size, technique and style options that can accommodate the range of skills from novice through to expert.

Showcase 2021

Message from the President

We are starting to prepare for Showcase 2021 and hope that all will go to plan this year.

The on-line entry system was working very well and we are going to continue using this method for the future; from 2021 no paper entries will be accepted. We think the entry system is very easy to follow once you have logged in for the first time. Please contact us if you have any problems.

An up to date Handbook containing the Showcase categories, dates, rules and timeline will be available on the website in early January every year.

We are so grateful to the membership groups and businesses that provide prizes for our show every year. However, we are mindful that many businesses have suffered during 2020 and have decided to offer a monetary prize or voucher to the first place and runner up in each category. Anyone who receives a Highly Commended will only receive a rosette.
