Call for entries: Scarf Festival 2016 Myths and Legends

What is on offer?

Scarf Festival 2016: Entries now open – City of Greater Geelong

Entries are now open for the 2016 Scarf Festival exhibition which will be held at the National Wool Museum from 3 June to 4 September 2016.

The theme for this year’s Scarf Festival is Myths and Legends: Capture the Extraordinary

Myths. Stories of a people and place … ancient and traditional; explaining the natural, the phenomenal and the typical; widely held beliefs or ideas accounting for, explaining and defining our customs and ideals.

Legends. Stories handed down … time-honoured, popular and infamous – truths asserted; the stories that capture human drama and the beliefs regarded as historical but never authenticated.

Scarves. Stories told in fabric … an item that can be draped and worn around the shoulders, about the neck or near the head for warmth, cleanliness, fashion or religious reasons, serving every conceivable purpose from utilitarian to frivolity, love token to political statement.

Interpret a myth, capture a legend, be part of something extraordinary.

All entrants will be in the running for the coveted 2016 Scarf of the Year award as well as other category awards including Use of Colour, 100% Wool, Thematic and more. **Please note there is a limit of one scarf per entrant, per category.

All entrants receive one free entry to the National Wool Museum upon presentation of their identification.

Please ensure that you read the conditions of entry carefully and complete all sections of the entry form for your scarf to be accepted. The entry form is a binding agreement between you and the National Wool Museum for the display and possible sale of your scarf.
