Scrapbook Competition 2023

Posted May 30, 2023 by WI Staff in Event Reports

Each year entrants to the Scrapbook Competition use various craft techniques, materials, photography and layouts to compile a vivid, colourful scrapbooks and single pages depicting the story of their Institute’s activities from the previous WI year.  Entries to the 2023 Competition had to document the events of the September 2021 – June 2022 WI season, a time when some normality was returning and Institutes were starting emerge from Covid-19 pandemic.  Despite the uncertainty of this time, our members still had lots of stories to share!  Great attention to detail and lots of hard work is involved in the time-consuming activity of scrapbooking and papercraft and each year the judge has the very difficult task of choosing the winners from a very high standard of entries.  The trophies for the Scrapbook Competition are presented at the AGM in the Europa Hotel, when the scrapbooks and single pages sit proudly on display for other members to admire.


Thank you to all the ladies who took the time to create an entry in support of this competition and congratulations to the winners!
