Cool facts about the winners:

  • One of the youngest entrants, Steve Papaefstratiou from Park Holme, has been collecting Christmas Lights since he was 10 years old.
  • Craig Bensch from Andrews Farm doesn’t use strings of lights like most displays, he uses and programs individual lights (synced to music) to create his display.
  • Chris Braven from Morphett Vale collects leftover/discarded placards from election time and recycles them into Christmas decorations.
  • Shane Lockyer from Seaford used down pipes to create train signals for his Polar Express train set up and he was even sat upon his roof as Santa in a sleigh on arrival!
  • Alice Sharples and her husband from Oaklands Park custom designed and hand cut each wooden item in their display – very unique Christmas Lights design.

There is a People’s Choice category that will open for public vote, with the winner getting $1,000 cash and one voter getting $500. Entries close Sunday December 17.
