THIS COMPETITION HAS NOW CLOSED - GOOD LUCK! Design a Mini Float for the 2023 National Pharmacies Christmas Pageant

Children aged from 5 to 16 years of age have the chance to win an exclusive experience at this year’s National Pharmacies Christmas Pageant. We are calling on all children in South Australia to get creative and express 'What Christmas Means to Me' by taking part and designing a mini float.

The winning float will be built and showcased in the 2023 National Pharmacies Christmas Pageant.

The Mini Float Competition is open to both individuals, class groups, arts students or children that just love to draw and be creative. You can present a drawing, painting or model.

This is a wonderful opportunity to put pen to paper, colour pencils and whatever other tools young creative minds can conjure up to imagine, craft and create a Pageant mini float.


Entries open Thursday 13 April 2023 and closes on Friday 30 June 2023. The winners will be notified in mid-July 2023. 

Designs are to be received no later than the close of business on Friday 30 June 2023 in order to meet production deadlines to be ready for the Pageant.


Thanks to National Pharmacies, the winning entries will receive:
First prize: $500 + a unique behind the scenes tour of Stardust Castle + a reserved space to watch the National Pharmacies Christmas Pageant
Second prize: $250
Third prize: $100

Each entry will be viewed by a panel of judges appointed by the Pageant’s creative director.
