How to Enter Competitions

Entry is open to all and you do not have to be residents of Tanunda -new exhibitors are always welcome.

The show office is open Monday to Friday the week prior to the Show 9.30am to 7.00pm with people available to help you with your entry and answer any questions you may have. The office is located on the front right corner of the Show  hall  (look for sign).

It is important that you read the Show book carefully before entry as each section has all relevant details of the different classes, closing date of entry, delivery and collection  times of your exhibit. The convenors name and phone number is listed for any queries you may have. Judging is done by an exhibitor number so entry remains anonymous – unless you are a winner.

ALL entries must be made on the entry form available to download on this website

ENTRIES: can be made at the Show office by the due date or emailed to

PAYMENT:  we accept cash or credit card at the Show office or by EFT (receipt must accompany the entry form)
