Welcome from
the President
Our Royal Queensland Show (Ekka) competitions are the ultimate showcase of the best of the best. They reward and
recognise our valued exhibitors for achieving excellence and promote agriculture and the critical role it plays in our
everyday lives to Queenslanders.

In 2018, more than 4,125 exhibitors travelled to the Ekka for their chance to win a coveted blue ribbon and share in
the $530,000 prize pool, including 1,186 new competitors.

We received 21,000 entries across 11,000 classes in 48 competition sections, with an increase in entries across
many categories including Canine, Cookery, Dairy Goats, Education on Show, Poultry and Farriers and Blacksmiths.

It was pleasing to see large crowds acknowledging the achievements of our exhibitors, with more than 414,000
people attending the 2018 show - our biggest Ekka since 2011.

Some of our competitions were even recognised at the International Association of Fairs and Expositions (IAFE)
Awards, which represents more than 1,100 fairs around the world. The Ekka won 24 international awards including 16
first places, with the Floristry, Race Around Ekka, Little Sprouts, Cookery and Student Made Cheese competitions all
placing.

The RNA is also committed to providing exhibitors with world-class facilities to use, through our $2.9 billion Brisbane
Showgrounds Regeneration Project.

In 2019, our Canine Competition exhibitors will use the new Alexandria Park, offering an undercover area for benching
and a grassed area for judging. Also this year, all four storeys of our world first animal pavilion will be in use for the
very first time, housing many animals including beef and dairy cattle, poultry and sheep.

For 143 years the RNA has been dedicated to championing agriculture and is honoured to stage Queensland’s largest
event on behalf of the community each year.

Good luck and we look forward to seeing your entries at the 2019 Royal Queensland Show.
