From papier mache monsters to intergalactic explorers we’ve seen some marvellous creations over the last 12 years. Every year we are blown away by creative endeavours of our Hat Competitors, and this year will be no exception.
Check out our Hat Competition Categories (aka HATEGORIES) below and let your creative juices flow!
LOVE THE LAND
We’re looking for hats and headpieces that are all about our beautiful planet and taking care of it.
Think environmentally friendly and ecologically sound…. Recycled materials, bold visions of the future, utopias and lush landscapes, when plants fight back, nurturing nature…. and anything in between.
How do I love me? Let me count the ways….
Anything that points to nurturing your good selves is the perfect inspiration for cladding your bonce. Whether it’s making yourself look fabulous or taking care of the tiny grey cells, it’s all about love hearts above your head and channelling whatever puts a spring in your step into a tremendous topper.
WILD & WONDERFUL
Whether animal, vegetable or mineral, it’s all good here… Take your imagination to a place of fabulousness, ferocity and freedom.
KIDS UNDER 12
Enter as a group or on your own!
The kids can take inspiration from ANY of our Hategories for this one! Whether made at the Kids’ Kingdom workshop, or a masterpiece prepared in advance, they can be WILD & WONDERFUL, LOVING OF THE LAND or LOVING OF YOURSELF….
Want to go large? Groups can also take inspiration from ANY of our Hategories and enter en masse. The only limits are your imaginations (and having fewer than 3 people… that’s not really a group).
BEST IN SHOW
Taking it back to our Farm roots with rosettes at the ready, this is for those who take it the extra mile in any of the above. Because sometimes the choice is just too great and we need to award people for outstanding contributions to hats.
