Judging for the competition will be conducted through points awarded for appeal, originality and overall presentation and will take place on the evenings of Wednesday the 22nd and Thursday the 23rd of December.

Public voting will also be available via the Visit Cowra website to decide the winner of the ‘People’s Choice Award’, with each vote cast being entered into a draw to win a special prize.

During the festival period, the Cowra Visitor Information Centre will have maps to participating houses as well as special 3D-style glasses, turning lights into amazing Christmas-themed shapes and patterns when worn.

Registrations open Monday 15 November and will close on Sunday 19 December. For more information, head to, call the Cowra Visitor Information Centre on (02) 6342 4333, or send an email to
