Since 2012, the state-wide search has given racegoers their moment in the style spotlight, from Kangaroo Island to Clare and everywhere in between. Now in its seventh year, the competition will be seeing some changes that will allow even more people to enter and participate in all of the trackside fashion action.

At each of the 25 qualifying events around the state, racegoers can register for and participate in the Fashions on the Field event on the day. At each event, the panel of judges will crown the Best Dressed Womenswear, the Runner-Up, the Best Millinery, Best Footwear (womens) and the Best Dressed Menswear. All of the winners will receive prizes, but the Best Dressed winner (menwear and womenswear) will continue on to qualify for the state final. All of the winners photos will be uploaded to the Winners Gallery, and the Best Dressed Womenswear photos will be uploaded to the VOTE section of the website.

At the end of the competition, an expert panel of judges will determine the overall winners from the pool of the year’s 25 Best Dressed winners. They will crown the Womenswear Winner of the competition, the Runner-Up, and the Best Dressed Menswear.

For both the qualifying events and the overall competition, judges will be determining winners according to a judging criteria consistent over the whole year. To see the judging criteria click here. If you want to understand how to enter on the day, read the article here
