Hattember Competition - A Challenge To Remember!

Welcome to Hatters Millinery Supplies Hattember Competition for 2021! For this year's competition we have chosen to centre around a theme of  "The places you'll go". In the past year, we've all had to rearrange our lives and our plans due to the pandemic and have therefore missed milestones, events, travel and other important celebrations. We are asking entrants in each category to be inspired by this prompt and think about the places you'll go or the things you'll do once restrictions are lifted. 

As usual, the Hattember competition is a charitable effort, raising funds for the John Skipper Kelly Fund. The JSK Fund is a cause close to our hearts, which provides leadership opportunities, mentoring and support for young people from a range of backgrounds.

This year we will be hosting a very special event featuring a fashion show presentation of all the entries. The event will be held at Le Montage, Lilyfield - a luxurious bridal venue where we will enjoy a sit down dinner in celebration of the Hattember Competition and the John Skipper Kelly Fund. The event will be held on the 2nd of September - Tickets will be available soon via Humanitix.

Category 2: Novice

This category is open to students and beginners alike - e.g TAFE students, community college students or those studying through an accredited source. Wether you've just been introduced to millinery or have been studying for a while, this is the perfect category for you to flex your creative muscles!

We are asking entrants in the Novice category to create a hat, headpiece or fascinator.

To allow you to fully spread your creative wings, we have decided to do away with the limit on extra materials that we have had in previous years! You may use as many additional materials as required, however we still ask that you use at least some part of each of the materials provided in the kit.

The piece should be made to fit a head fit of 22.5 inches or 57cm.

Judges will determine the winner of the Novice category by -

Original Design
Quality Workmanship
Use of provided and additional materials
