FLYING Brick Cider House is calling locals to submit weird, wacky and fabulous creations into their fifth annual Great Australian Scarecrow competition.

Entries opened for the all-ages creativity contest earlier this month, with more than $4,000 worth of prizes up for grabs.

The Great Australian Scarecrow competition aims to not only bring people together to connect and create, but also to help scare the crows off during cider fruit harvesting season.

Event organiser and The Sharp Group director of marketing, sales and hospitality Lyndsay Sharp said the concept would be “back and firing on all cylinders”.

“Since it first launched, we have seen so many weird, wacky and fabulous creations, we can’t wait to see what amazing scarecrows people have imagined this year.

“We are hoping for lots of entries – it would be lovely to see the entire fence loaded up with colourful scarecrows.

“We encourage everyone to grab their friends, school buddies, parents and work colleges and get their creative juices flowing.”

To participate, head to flyingbrickciderco.com.au and download the entry form.

Entrants can bring their entry forms and amazing scarecrows down to Flying Brick Cider House before March 4 to be installed.

Winners will be announced on Australian Cider Day, March 9.
