Art, Craft & Cookery

The Royal Melbourne Show Art, Craft and Cookery competition is one of the largest such competitions and displays in Australia with over 3,500 entries in more than 350 classes.

Entries become part of an exhibition which attracts thousands of keen spectators during the Royal Melbourne Show, making it one of the most visited pavilions.

From photography to fashion, embroidery to preserves and decorated cakes, the Art, Craft and Cookery competition encourages creativity and passion.

There’s nothing quite like the sense of personal achievement when you take part in the prestige of the Art, Craft and Cookery competition.
