Over the past month the Cowra Christmas Lights Competition has seen a total of 43 properties in Cowra and surrounding villages compete for a share in $5,000 worth of Cowra Cash Cards. On Wednesday 23 December, the 4 winning properties and the best street were announced via the Cowra Christmas Festival Facebook page.

"It's been incredible to see so much support and engagement from our amazing community throughout this year's Cowra Christmas Festival Program" said Cowra Tourism Assistant Manager Kurt Overzet. "It's been a difficult year for so many, just being able to bring the community together and give them something to look forward to and marvel at through this competition has been so rewarding for us here at Cowra Tourism" he continued.

"I want to thank all our entrants who have put on such an incredible display for the community's enjoyment, the hundreds who voted for the People's Choice Award, and of course, Cowra Shire Council who kindly donated the $5,000 for the competition prize pool".

The winning houses and best street were determined by a panel of 3 judges, with points awarded for appeal, originality and overall presentation. The People's Choice Award, sponsored by Cowra Bunnings was awarded to the house that received the most votes through the Visit Cowra website between 20 - 22 December.

The award winners are listed below:
