Judges

Major Prizes:

Throughout the Promotional Period, a digital voting system will be open for members of the public to vote for their favourite “Best Worst Shed” entry.

At the end of the competition Entry Period (10th January, 2022, 1:00pm AEST), the online voting system will close. The ten entries with the highest number of votes recorded during the competition entry period will form the top 10 entries and be eligible for the Major Prize judging. Of the top ten, three entries will be selected as winners by the Judge. The judge of the Major Prize Winners is a panel of representatives from Fair Dinkum Builds and all gold and silver level sponsors of the Promotion (Major Prize Judge). Entries will be judged according to the following criteria:

  1. Creativity

    3. any required building permits are able to be obtained;
    4. the required timeframes set out in this document can be met;

    6. the Major Prize Winners are able and willing to cover any excess costs as outlined in the “Prize” section above.)

The three Major Prize winners are not determined by the total number of votes received.
