The Art, Craft and Cookery competition is judged prior to the Royal Melbourne Show each year before exhibits are displayed for public viewing during Show. The Art, Craft and Cookery Pavilion has been the inspiration for many visitors, providing a vibrant display showcasing a unique cross section of traditional and innovative arts, crafts and cookery.

The competition is now over 100 years old with a rich history dating back to 1911 when a competitive section called ‘Women’s Industries’ was introduced into the Royal Melbourne Show.
