Creative Art & Craft

Competition Overview 

Queensland’s most creative types are encouraged to enter the Creative Art and Craft Competition presented by Spotlight.  

Classes range from calligraphy, beading, embroidery and knitting, to leatherwork, egg decorating, Teddy Bears and bark pictures. 

The competition also now includes a lace-making section. Junior classes for this section have a reduced entry fee. 

All entries in the Leather Work classes (130-139) will this year receive a $25 voucher from Packer Leather (no limit per exhibitor, only redeemable upon collection of entry). 

In 2021, the Creative Arts & Craft Competition will have an exciting new home with the Spotlight Arts & Cookery precinct moving upstairs in the Royal International Convention Centre (Royal ICC). 

For information on delivery and collection dates, times and location, please read the Important Exhibitor Information. 

We welcome Spotlight as presenter of the Arts and Cookery competitions. All Champions and 1st, 2nd and 3rd place-getters will receive a Spotlight voucher.
