GYS Competitions 2022

The Great Yorkshire Show this year will be held on 12th-15th July. There are no WI food competitions this year but there are a few others you may be interested in entering. The organisers have said that there will be a relaxed feel to this year’s judging to encourage people to enter. You don’t need to enter until April so this is just to start gathering your ideas.


A sunset or sunrise. Mounted not framed and no bigger than A4.


'A chance to reflect'. A picture, mounted not framed: watercolour, acrylic, pastel, collage or mixed media. No bigger than 30 cm x 40 cm.


Class 1: A small hanging circlet or wreath using dried or artificial plant material. 30 cm overall.

Class 2: a hand tied bouquet using fresh material in water. 25.5cm.


Class 1: a sock creature

Class 2: a hanging storage pod no greater than 25 cm high 14 cm base.

Class 3: A macrame wall hanging no bigger than 30 x90 cm. 2 colours of yarn. Beads allowed.

Class 4: A fob style scissor keeper.

Final competition

A free standing scarecrow to be judged by a public vote.

Spa Sweethearts have had some success in the past with competitions at the Great Yorkshire Show. Let's keep it up!

Do you fancy having a go? Art, craft and photography need to be at Alma House in Ripon by 24th June and all others need to be taken to the showground on Sunday 10th or Monday 11th July. The entry form needs to be completed at the April meeting. Good luck
