The Window Display Competition has become the most hotly contested events on the St Ives in December calendar with over 60 shops and galleries around the town competing for one (or both) of the coveted annual awards. This year’s suggested theme is The Nutcracker.

On Saturday 16th December, we are delighted that Bob Devereux – local poet, artist and raconteur – will be touring the town to decide on the winner of the Judge’s Shield for Best Overall Window Display with rosettes for: Best Interpretation of the Theme; Most Humorous Window; Best Small Window.

But, throughout the month,  everyone a chance to vote for the People’s Award. Which business do you think has helped add a touch of Christmas magic to the town? You can vote for your favourite display:

  •  There will be voting boxes in both local Post Offices – on the Wharf and on Tregenna Hill where you can cast your vote. The closing date for votes is 12.30pm on Saturday 30th December 2017.
  • Twitter/Instagram – take a photo of the window you want to vote for and hashtag it with #SIDwindow2017 and the shop name. (It can only be counted if you have a public account). The closing date for votes is midnight on Sunday 31st December 2017.
  • Post a picture on our St Ives in December Facebook page comments section with the shop name. One vote per person. The closing date for votes is midnight on Sunday 31st December 2017.

Last year, The Glass Tree on Fore Street was the runaway winner for both awards. Who will be the lucky winner(s) this time?
