Providing a creative wonderland with community heart, the Canning Show is excited to launch one of WA’s biggest, longest-running community-showcasing exhibitions. With online entries open now for the Canning Show Exhibition, anyone can have a go at igniting their creativity, practising new skills, or showcasing their talents, whilst potentially being rewarded in $13,500+ in cash prizes on offer, as well as awards, sashes, exclusive free invites to the Exhibition Awards gala dinner, and more.

Whilst you can still enter with printed forms and a full-colour schedule available from our office soon, we encourage both regular and brand-new Exhibition entrants to use the fully automated ShowDay platform that makes it easy to enter, pay, receive reminders, and track your Show entries and results online. Plus, you can add other people’s entries at the same time you do yours – the perfect enticer for some healthy family fun or friends-ly competition. Whether you’re 2 years old or 100, experienced or trying something for the first time, it’s time to get creative, get growing, get making, and have a go!
