EXHIBITION – Plenty of opportunities for schools/students!

Canning Show Exhibition has a long history of showcasing schools and their students. The Exhibition can be the perfect motivator for students to create great work and gain recognition for their creativity, further inspiring their creative processes and ambition. If students also win prizes, then this can result in fantastic media coverage and increase your schools’ reputation for producing great students and work.


  • One of the largest annual exhibitions in WA showcasing a wide array of arts, crafts, hobbies, creations and produce, all about igniting your creative spark.
  • Huge audience – don’t just have your friends and family admire your work – get seen by 10K+ people over the weekend of the Canning Show.
