Call for Entries for 22nd Annual Holiday Wreath Contest

 

Mayor Mufi Hannemann invites Honolulu residents to enter the City's 22nd annual Holiday Wreath Contest in November.

Mayor Hannemann said, "I look forward to this contest every year. It showcases the talent and creativity of Honolulu's crafters. This year's wreath theme, "A Royal Holiday" in honor of our Hawaiian alii, holds the promise of beautifully crafted entries that everyone will enjoy seeing."

The  contest has three categories: Adult Wreath, open to any individual or group ages 18 and older; Youth Contest, open to any individual or group ages 17 or younger; and Theme Wreath, open to any individual or group that best depicts this year's theme, "A Royal Holiday." 

            First, second and third place winners in each category will receive a ribbon and monetary awards of $150, $100 and $75, respectively.

            An overall "Best in Show" will receive the Mayor's Holly Award of $200, while six "Judge's Choice Awards" will each receive $25. Each entrant, individual or group, may win only one award. 

Contest entries will be accepted on Wednesday, November 28, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Lane Gallery of Honolulu Hale (530 South King Street, Diamond Head end of the ground floor). Entries will only be accepted during the designated date and times, and must include a completed Wreath Contest Entry Form.

Judging will be based on workmanship, creativity and use of materials. Wreaths in the theme category will be judged on the entrant's incorporation of the "A Royal Holiday" theme into the wreath.

Winners will be notified by December 7. All entries will be exhibited in the Lane Gallery of Honolulu Hale throughout Honolulu City Lights from December 1, 2007 to January 1, 2008.

For more information contact the Mayor's Office of Culture and the Arts at 523-4674 or visit www.honolulu.gov/moca/ for a contest entry form.
