Christmas Lights Competition

​​​Make the Lockyer shine this Christmas!​

Entries are now open for this year’s Spirit of the Lockyer Valley Christmas Lights and Decoration Competition. Whether you prefer lights or decorations, we invite you to enter the competition and help the Lockyer Valley celebrate!

You can download the pdf entry form below:


There are seven categories to choose from and remember, you can enter more than one category! 

Choose from:

  • Best nativity scene
  • Best decorated home
  • Best decorated or lit business (interior/window)
  • Best novice (first time entrant any category)
  • Best community group
  • Best solar powered display 
  • Best recycling display


A 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize will be awarded in each category with two or more entrants. All entrants will be given a sign to display at the residence to acknowledge their involvement in the competition. 

Due dates and judging 

With nominations now open, residents have until 4.30pm on Friday 23 November to get their entries submitted, which means there is plenty of time to ignite your creative side and give your home or business a spark of colour. 

Judging will commence on Tuesday 27 November 2018, subject to weather, with winners announced in the Gatton Star on Wednesday 12 December 2018.

Remember that you don't need to 'light up' your home, garden or business. Decorations are just as festive and really bring your home or shop front to life, spreading joy throughout the region.
