Window Wonderland Competition 2020

14 Oct 2020

Dig out your bright lights and baubles, your snow and sparkles, and your tinsel and trees, because the Derby City Council Window Wonderland competition returns!
Brought to you by Derby City Council supported by the Cathedral Quarter and St Peters Quarter BID’s, businesses in the area are being encouraged to dress their windows to bring festive cheer to the city of Derby!
You can be as festive and creative as possible, however your window MUST feature a Rainbow’, to send a Thank You to our NHS and Key Workers during the Christmas period.
Not only will you be in for the chance of winning a fantastic prize but also your business will benefit from extensive marketing and social media coverage. This will include information on your business, photos and video of inside your shop and ways to shop with you.
The cash prizes on offer are:-
Overall Winner £250
Public Vote £200
Runner Up £100
There will also be an app available for families to take part in an online Window Wonderland trail enabling them to ‘spot the rainbow’ in your display.
We are also asking if you would like to take part in a Festive Derby Christmas Elf trail by either including an Elf on the Shelf in your display, or including a Christmas Elf Window sticker which will be provided to you.
