SHOWCASE ESPERANCE Design Competition

Each year Esperance has the opportunity to showcase our local talent and our beautiful region to the thousands of people visiting Yagan Square in the Perth CBD.

The Shire of Esperance is holds a competition each year to find our favourite local design.

 Design entries can be from individuals, schools, community groups and amateur & professional artists within the Esperance region. 

The designs can be

  • digitally created or
  • physically created in ANY medium then digitized (photographed).

There is a prize of $500 worth of gift vouchers from local businesses to the winner and $50 gift vouchers for the four other category winners.

Councillors judge the local designs with the winning design to be submitted for entry in the state-wide #shoWcAse in Pixels competition. 

#shoWcAse in Pixels is WA’s biggest community arts project, featuring designs from Councils all over the state. The designs are displayed on the digital screen in Yagan Square, during the annual Local Government Convention each year.

2020 and 2021 Entries can be seen below.
