It’s that time of year again and Athenry Agricultural Show kicks off celebrating 127 years on the go. At mishnóc we are again proud to sponsor the Adult Crafts Competition on the day. This year will see the introduction of the mishnóc “Adult Craft With Retail Potential” prize. All entries in the Adult Crafts Section are automatically entered into the competition and there is a €150 first place prize up for grabs.
About the competition
Our prize award “Adult Craft With Retail Potential” is all about supporting the home industries side of Athenry Show. Many products on the retail market today started as a hobby or an idea on someones kitchen table. Our award seeks to encourage entrepreneurship in the rural economy. We like to think we know a thing or two about quality at mishnóc and on the day we will award first place to a craft that we think has the potential to become a stand alone retail product for the home or export market.
The winner on the day will receive a first prize of €150. A profile page on our website mishnoc.com and the winning entry will be displayed in our Galway shop to showcase the talent.
Who Is It For ?
Everybody. We encourage as many entries as possible on the day. At the end of the day crafting is all about self fulfilment and expression. Our prize seeks to encourage entrepreneurship but in doing so we hope it celebrates the art of crafting.
How do I enter?
