Prize: Family pass for Taronga Zoo/Taronga Western Plains Zoo (valued at $152), $100 dining voucher for Chiosco by Ormeggio
This year’s winner in the Lighting category, Camperdown Cellars in Spofforth Street, knows how to pack a punch. The lighting treatment has fabulous street impact; it’s bright and cheerful and screams festive fun.
Winner – Most Sustainable Display
Prize: $300 dining voucher for Mosman Rowers Club
The RAPT judges were hugely impressed with the thought and effort that went into creating Mac Medic’s quirky and innovative display that’s also highly sustainable. Old computers and computer parts have been cleverly crafted into Christmas trees and a snowy landscape, and a Mac desktop from yesteryear and excess toilet rolls have been re-born as a snowman to welcome passers-by.
