Frequently Asked Questions:

Do I have to win a prize in my Group Exhibition before I can enter the State Exhibition?

No, definitely not! Every member is welcome to enter the State Exhibition, whether or not they have ever entered a Group Exhibition.

Can I enter the same article that I entered in my Group Exhibition previously?

In general, yes. You can enter the same handcraft article, provided that it was completed within the past two years and has not been used or soiled. You can enter another jar from the same batch of preserves that you made for your Group Exhibition – but not the same jar, as it has been opened and tasted. You will need to make new entries in the cookery sections – they would be a bit stale otherwise!

Is my work good enough to be entered in the State Exhibition?

How will you know unless you try? Every entry in the State Exhibition receives a written comment from the judges, which is intended to give you feedback on your entry and encourage you to do better next time. Entering is a great learning experience, especially if you are able to visit the Exhibition and see your work on display, side by side with other members’ work.
