Whilst the Lithgow Halloween street carnival has been cancelled for 2021, Lithgow Halloween Digital 2021 returns with the online Best Dressed competition and the popular Lithgow Halloween Smartphone Film Competition.

With the COVID-19 situation looking unlikely to allow gathering at major events, Lithgow Council has cancelled the Lithgow Halloween street carnival for 2021, but for lovers of Halloween there is still plenty on offer.

The Lithgow Halloween Best Dressed competition is offering $4,500 in prizes. Similar to the popular competition run in 2020 there will be multiple categories and plenty of prizes.  More details of how to enter will follow soon. Entries will close midnight 30th October 2021, with an independent panel judging the entries, with winners announced in the first week of November 2021.

The second component of Lithgow Halloween Digital 2021 is the highly successful Lithgow Halloween Smartphone Film Competition. Lithgow Tourism and Events has once again teamed up with SF3 Smartfone Flickfest to provide support and specialist judging. Entries have been open since the 13th of August on the ‘Film Freeway’ website, and already 57 entries have been received. Keep following Lithgow Tourism and Events social media channels on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for all the latest news on Lithgow Halloween Digital 2021. Lithgow Mayor Ray Thompson said “2021 has been a challenging year for events but Lithgow Halloween Digital gives people the ability to still participate and have some fun.  I would encourage people to participate in Lithgow Halloween Digital 2021 and be in the running to win some great prizes”.
