A ‘Peoples Choice Award’ category will also run this year and this will give the public a chance to vote for their favorite window, this will be publicised via the Carnival Facebook Page.

In the past we had a fantastic response to the Shop Window Competition, why not take a look at the Gallery

2022 Entrants as businesses register, we will show them here

The Judging panel will be the staff and the Friends Group from Brackley Library. The Windows will be judged out of 5 on the following categories:

  • Carnival Theme
  • Humour
  • Creativity
  • Use of Colour
  • Impact and Shop integration.

There are two categories to enter Small window entries and Large Window entries

This is a great opportunity to brighten up Brackley and have some fun with your window displays, and we do hope you will consider taking part and registering your business.
