ORGANISER of the 2023 Ephemera display in the Lloyd Mann Gardens in Home Hill, Uli Liessmann is brimming with delight over the standard of the entries received and the interest being shown by the public as the competition moves towards the announcement of the winner at the Harvest Festival Street Party in and around Watson’s Green on Saturday night, November 11.
The annual Canefields Ephemera is now open in the Lloyd Mann Gardens for everyone to see and all those who take the time to stop and view the nine entries will be amazed by the thought and effort that has gone into producing the displays.
The entries will be open to the public up to the end of the 2023 Home Hill Harvest Festival, with the winner being announced during the Festival Street Party while the public will also be able to vote for the Public Choice winner, by submitting an entry through the Harvest Festival Facebook Page.
Mr Liessmann praised the quality of the entries that have been set up throughout the Lloyd Mann Gardens as well as the interest being shown by the public in the displays, with people regularly walking through the Gardens to view the different displays.
He also indicated that two busloads of Visual Arts students from the Burdekin Catholic High School had visited the Ephemera this week, with each bus coming at different times and the students spending around two hours each viewing the displays.
The Burdekin community have been urged to take the time in inspect the displays and add their thoughts to the public choice decision, with a $500 prize going to the most popular display.
Three independent judges also visited the Gardens at different times to make their decision on a winner of the $1500 prize, with Mr Liessmann pointing out that the judges were unknown to him or to each other.
The displays will be open in the Lloyd Mann Gardens through to the end of the month.
