All you stylish campers! 

Consider yourself a bit of a visionary when it comes to turning the mundane into something extraordinary? Well, we’re summoning all the most creative campers out there!

The Curated Camping Competition is back, and we want you to design the most innovative, imaginative, and experimental campsites. It’s returning with the four categories in our search for Festival One’s best campsites! The winners of each category will have their names etched on prestigious trophies that will be theirs to keep until they’re put on the line again at Festival One 2018.

Put your creative abilities to the test for the following camping categories:

Best Camping Community

Think you’ve got the most fun, wacky or coolest community at Festival One? Show us what your group is all about and get everyone involved to take out the best camping community prize.

Most Creative Campsite

Whether you’re planning on ‘glamping’ or living like cavemen, we want to see your imaginations at their best with the most out of the box tent town ideas!

Best Campsite Lighting

What better way to light up Festival One than with some healthy competition.  As dusk falls on Saturday night, our judges will be looking for the most stunningly lit campsites to award this prize to.

Best Crew Campsite

Festival One wouldn’t be possible without you, so cut loose, go crazy & have fun. There’s no theme set, so let your imaginations run wild.

P.S. Our sponsors/donors manager, Geoff, has won this one two years in a row – come on!


Our only rules are that it must be safe, you must take it away with you at the end, and please make sure your brilliant lighting plans aren’t going to cut power to Hamilton or obscure any flight paths. Simple!

So what are you waiting for? Get planning!
