Scarecrow competition 2023!
Updated: 22 September 2023
There was great innovation and style to be found in the creation of the scarecrows presented in the Annual Show 2023 competition.
The winner (first photo below) was created by Amelia and Madi can only be described as SCARY, with its feathery angel wings, spooky blue unblinking eyes and gorgeous roses and sunflowers adorning its dress.
Second prize was for the karaoke-wielding, sunglasses wearing, pink-hatted scarecrow, which the judges thought would definitely scare any crop-stealing birds.
Third prize went to the child-sized scarecrow, with its mysterious starfish eyes and cool pink trousers.
Other entries included a “scaresheep” with a fleece made from a bathmat; a straw-headed arms-outstretched individual; a kindly looking granny with cats on her lap; a tractor driving farmer; and a disembodied head on a broomstick.
The judges said that all in all the entries were "absolutely fantastic" and the entrants are to be congratulated for their creations and efforts!
We announce our exciting scarecrow competition for 2023 in which all the family can take part!
Your scarecrow can be any size, any shape and any animal or person, real or fictional. You could even make a tableau of scarecrows!
