Welcome from the President

   The spirit of friendly competition comes alive at the Sydney Royal Easter
   Show each year when Australia’s agricultural community comes together to
   celebrate. Thank you for joining this community and entering a Sydney Royal
   competition.

   Today the Sydney Royal competitions held at the Show attract close to 30,000
   entries each year from skilled breeders, producers and craftspeople across
   the country. Because our competitions set benchmarks in excellence and
   encourage development and innovation, they continue to be an important
   part of Australia’s agricultural industry. Winning a prestigious Sydney Royal
   medal not only confirms the exceptional standard of your entry, it can also
   bring commercial advantages. Major award winners have the benefit of
   using Sydney Royal medal artwork to promote their success in marketing
   campaigns.

   Every year we work hard to evolve the Sydney Royal competitions. Our
   commitment to adapting to consumer and industry trends keeps our
   competitions relevant and encourages world-class excellence amongst
   entrants.

   The integrity of the competitions relies on the professionalism and ethical
   standards of our judges, and I thank them for the dedication and knowledge
   they share with us. I also extend thanks to our Stewards, generous sponsors,
   our Committees and supporters.

   I wish you the very best of luck this year, and whether your entry is an award
   winner or not I hope you benefit from your Sydney Royal experience.
