You can WIN!

We are looking forward to the 2023 One Of A Kind Winter Show and showcasing the talent and creativity of our exhibitors! We have some exciting award categories, contests, and initiatives for you to get involved with and have a chance to win cash prizes. 

Theme Competition

The exciting return of the much-loved theme competition at Winter! This year's theme is: "Evergreen". 

Read more about the theme competition and your creativity prompt here. 

Each year, we challenge our vendors to take a break from their regular production schedule and flex their creative muscles for our theme competition. We pick the subject, and you create a One Of A Kind piece in your medium to build an incredible onsite display that welcomes customers to the show and gives them a taste of the talent they are about to experience.

  • To participate, you must register your entry with by filling out the competition form by the deadline and drop your submission off onsite during designated times at move-in.

Theme Competition Entry Deadline: Friday, November 10, 2023 (tbc)
