There were 34 entries, which is a terrific response from local businesses. There were a number of new entries from business houses who have not been part of the Decorated Windows Competition previously. Judges were impressed with the high quality of entries and the points between many of the winners was very close.
Ergon Energy representative Lee Van Kuyck was very impressed with the high standard of entries and how the 2016 Ergon Energy Decorated Windows Competition was conducted. It was Lee’s first time as a Judge and enjoyed the event. Other judges were John and Julie Lindsay and the co-ordinator was David Ross.
