Santos Best Dressed Town Competition
2015 Nominations now open!
The Santos Tour Down Under Best Dressed Town Competition is a great way for South Australian communities, businesses, property owners and households to be a part of the excitement of the Santos Tour Down Under. Showcase your festive involvement through appearance, environmental initiative and innovation.
The competition is open to all towns, suburbs, businesses, property owners and households along the race route from stages 1-5 inclusive. Daily winners for each category of town, private residence, property/paddock and commercial property will be awarded, and an overall winner for each category at the end of the race.
The Santos Best Dressed Town category awards gold, silver and bronze overall winners. Prizes include framed certificates, gift packs, gardening supplies from Peats Soil and up to $3000 for the overall town winner.
An innovation award may be presented for each stage to a nominee across any category that wasn’t awarded the daily prize. This could be for a nominee that judges feel presents something that is innovative and deserves recognition.
If you are situated along any part of the stage 1-5 race routes, make sure you ‘dress to impress’ either your community, business, paddock or house and nominate!
