EXHIBITION RESULTS

The heart and soul of the Show for 110+ years, the Exhibition component evolved this year to see online entries allowed for the first time. We were pleased to experience the most entries we’ve seen for numerous years, contributing to an inspiring diversity of exhibits on display, being admired by a bigger crowd than ever at the Show two weekends ago. This year the Canning Show Exhibition saw a total of 343 people submitting 2580 entries, ranging from 2 to nearly 100-year olds sharing in $13,000+ in cash prizes.

With all seats filled at the Exhibition Awards on Saturday just gone, the best of the best of exhibitors were awarded for their efforts. Cannington Exhibition Centre & Showgrounds’ main Exhibition Hall hosted a classy three-course affair for distinguished guests, award-winning exhibitors and CAHRS committee, members, volunteers and staff, many of them frocking up in colourful attire to celebrate the International Year of Fruit & Vegetables. In-between performances from DJ Snake Mountain, Formidable Vegetable Soundsystem and Patti The Pig, the applause was loud for some of the best entrants showcased at one of WA’s biggest community-focused Exhibitions.

No stranger to the Awards stage, Ron Speed took top honours, taking out the George H Wilson Perpetual Award, won by the exhibitor with the most points gained from placements overall. With most of his winning entries in the Photography Section, he also picked up numerous awards in Cooking and Home & Dairy Produce. Ron’s bag of awards included 31 first places, 3 Champion placings and a total of 219 points.


Also of note:

  • In terms of Overall Most Points, Ron Seaton came in second place, and Brad McKnight
  • A hit last year, Alice Johnson again made a big impression for someone so small, taking out the Most Points Overall in the Youth classes, plus achieving Champion status in two sections.
  • Formidable gardener Rini Smith won the coveted trophy for Best Exhibit in Fruit and Vegetables for an amazing 4th time having previously picked up the award in 2014,2019, 2020, and also won a prize on the night for her fruit and veg themed attire.

CAHRS CEO Dianne Begg applauded, “Modernisation of the traditional competitions of the Show has been well received as we can see from the increased levels of interest and standards of exhibits displayed. We are seeing more handicrafts and overlooked skills being honed by exhibitors and excitingly fantastic use of recycled materials. Our first year of accepting online entries went relatively problem free and sets the scene for expansion of the competition to a wider audience in the future.”

 

After last year’s event broke audience records for the second year in a row with 13,500+ smiling attendees, sold-out Sessions and won awards, all signs are excitedly pointing to 2021’s LiveLighter Canning Show being bigger and – as the just-released program supports – better than ever!
