Enter an Edible Creation:

We appreciate a donation to enter the competition but it’s not required.
The Holiday Festival is a fundraising event for Newtown Youth & Family Services.


Entry Criteria:
    • We will need 5 photos of your entry.
      1 photo of each side plus 1 photo showing proof that the creation is original. For example, a selfie with the creation.
    • The photos taken of each side should not include any evidence of who created the display. These photos will be posted on social media and the entries need to remain anonymous to those judging.
  • BASE
    • Although it is recommended to construct your display on a base, it is not required this year because entries are not being transported.
    • Entries combined with base must not be larger than 24 inches high, 24 inches wide, and 24 inches long.
    • Everything above the base of your entry must be composed completely of edible materials.
      Edible materials are not limited to candies and icings. Use of gum paste, fondant, pastillage, chocolate, modeling chocolate, royal icing, isomalt, cast sugar, gelatin and pressed sugar is encouraged. Use of “Disco Dust”, “Rainbow Dust” or “Hologram Powder” is permitted. Any entry with non-edible components will be automatically disqualified from placing in the competition.
    • No artificial display materials, such as Styrofoam, interior lighting or other electronic components are to be used in the construction or decoration of the entry.
    • Candies must be unwrapped and free of any non-edible materials, for example: lollipop sticks.
    • Non-edible materials such as paint and/or ribbon are approved and encouraged to decorate the outer edge of your base only.
    • There are no restrictions on the use of shelf stable/non-perishable icings and ingredients. Typically we cannot accept structures made with egg or butter icing as they quickly turn rancid and soften causing the structure to disintegrate. With this year’s competition being virtual, those items are allowed. If you do choose to use perishable ingredients, remember to take the photos of your creation immediately after completion.
  • Judging
    • The community will vote via social media.
Entry Timeline:
  • Entry Photos are due Friday, December 4th.
  • Entries will be posted on social media from Sunday, December 6th through Friday, December 11th.
  • Winners will be announced on Saturday, December 12th.
