WOW! What a prize

WOW - What a prize!!
If you’ve ever felt inspired to make an entry for Wearable Art – now is the time to do it. Community Arts is very excited to announce that for our 2011 event, the Overall Winner and Overall Runner-Up will both receive a return air fare to Wellington, New Zealand and tickets to the WOW Montana Wearable Art Awards Show held in September 2011. Our sincere thanks to Air New Zealand for generously sponsoring both return airfares. We also say an enormous “THANKYOU” to Bart at Burnt Pine Travel for taking our request to Air New Zealand. These are really wonderful prizes and Air New Zealand’s sponsorship will no doubt result in some amazing creations coming down the cat walk in January 2011.

The WOW Montana show was the original inspiration for Community Arts to run a Wearable Art Competition and Parade. Their event began in the town of Nelson, but quickly became so popular that it had to be moved to Wellington. Entries are received from across the world and the Awards Show of winners is presented ten times each September to an audience in excess of 35,000. They describe the shows as “Difficult to describe, hard to define and utterly impossible to forget. A montage of theatre, dance, colour, movement and art, simply put the Montana WOW Awards Shows are theatrical spectaculars”. Community Arts will also see if there is a group of locals who would like to travel to Wellington for the show and will be getting a package deal together. More information will be provided as it comes to hand. In the meantime you can find out more about WOW Montana and the Shows at

Our first event was five years ago and we’ve had so much fun over those years with amazing entries, brilliant local models and incredible audiences. The parade quickly became one of the most popular events on our Norfolk calendar – and now with the incentive of these fabulous prizes we’re sure it will show no signs of slowing. Confirmation of the categories for 2011 will be advertised in the next few weeks.
