Wish Upon a Star

Artists of all ages and skill levels are invited to help us Light Up Winter with their “Wish Upon a Star” sculptures, installations, and other artworks.

The Cromwell & Districts Promotion Group (CDPG) is offering local and regional artists the chance to Light Up Winter this year with a call for entries in the “Wish Upon a Star” art competition. 

This competition is an opportunity for the community to showcase their creative talents while making Light Up Winter bigger and brighter. We are looking for sculptures, installations, and other art pieces that are lit up and speak to the theme.

Submissions for entries are open now, and the physical art pieces need to be delivered to The Mall on Saturday, 10 July between 1 and 2 pm. All entries will be displayed during the Light Up Winter celebrations from 4 till 9 pm. Prizes for the best artworks in each category will be awarded on the night.

The Wish Upon a Star art competition includes the following categories: 

Professional (anyone who sells their art for money)

Adults – 19 and over

Kids 11 - 18

Kids 10 and under
