DESPITE a snap cancellation of 2021's Horsham Show, organisers are looking to continue the event online, adopting a similar format to 2020's virtual show.
The Horsham 'Show-off' will take place on Sunday, September 26, and feature unique community submissions posted to the Horsham Show Facebook page every 10 minutes from 10am to 10pm.
The posts will be entries across many different competitions, including decorated cupcakes, LEGO art, scarecrows, biggest weeds and more.
Participants have until noon Saturday to submit their entries via the Horsham Show Facebook page.
Horsham Agricultural and Pastoral Society secretary Andrea Cross said the online photo competition came about as a continuation of the show's earlier photography competition.
"Our photography section was always going to be an online competition, but we swung into action with more online competitions after a decision to cancel was made," she said.
"The greatest Horsham show-off is the person who submits what the judges think is the best entry into anything other than what is listed. For example, I had a young nine-year-old boy who has been tye-dying t-shirts.
"I had another woman from Kangaroo Island who collects sea glass and made pictures from what she collects on the beach.
"There was an old lady who submitted a knitted children's cardigan.
"If you have decorated a cake that you think is so beautiful you just want to show it off, this is your chance."
The entries will be posted to the Horsham Show's Facebook page, in a similar format to 2020's virtual show.
Ms Cross said the organising committee had since streamlined the virtual show process and had received expressions of interest from other regional Victorian agricultural shows.
"I think we ware well known in the shown community of how to deliver an online event. I have never actually seen any other events like it," she said.
"This really is every 10 minutes there is something new to look at in terms of showcasing. I am happy that we have found that niche.
"It is the process behind the scenes that we have adapted this year to make it easier. Because our timeline has been cut so short."
