The prizes awarded in the Woodwork Competition this year are significant.

For each of the 6 Categories in the competition, 5 categories in the Open comp and 1 category in the Young Adult comp (14 to 16 yrs), there are two prizes available.

Second prize is a $25 gift certificate from the ‘Mighty Helpful’ guys at Mitre 10 in Port Elliot.

First prize is a $50 gift certificate from Carbatec, ‘The Home of Woodworking’.

There is an additional competition for ‘People’s Choice – Best in Show’. This involves the public voting for their favourite entry on Saturday.
The entry that receives the most votes wins… it’s that simple.

The prize for Best in Show is a $50 gift certificate from Carbatec and a brand-new Arbortech woodworking tool worth over $350 straight from the Arbortech headquarters in WA.

The Best in Show competition has no categories; the prize is awarded to whatever entry is most beloved by the public on the Saturday of the Show.

You can enter up to 3 items in each of the categories for which you are eligible so there’s lots of chances to win.  So why not have a go… fill in the entry form and get working on your big winner!
