Sculpture Competition

The inaugural Apple Valley Sculpture Competition invites Tassie makers, artists and dreamers to create an installation for this year’s Mid-Winter Festival.

Winter in Tassie can be a time to go in deep and retreat but we want you to get your hands dirty, get outside to celebrate the originality, creativity and uniqueness that lives in our special valley.

Cash prizes up for grabs awarded by a panel of people who know their stuff and a people’s choice award too!


First: $3,000

Second:  $2,000

People’s Choice Award:  $1,000
