Bling a Bra for October is a creative bra competition held annually throughout the South Eastern Sydney, Illawarra and Shoalhaven areas to raise awareness of Breast Cancer throughout the month of October (Breast Cancer Awareness Month).
Proudly coordinated by South Eastern Sydney Illawarra BreastScreen Service and supported by local partner organisations, the Bling A Bra Competition aims to increase the awareness of breast cancer and highlight the importance of breast screening every two years for all women between the age of 50 - 74 years.
The competition further helps to foster the creativity of our local community and provide an opportunity for the issue of breast cancer to be creatively, thoughtfully and personally expressed.
The competition is largely supported by local businesses who donate their services, entertainment, materials and prizes and local volunteers who generously give their time and expertise as judges.
There is no entry fee to take part in the Bling A Bra for October Competition and anyone can enter. Entrants are encouraged to decorate or create a bra that communicates and reflects their chosen theme or inspiration.
All entries will be exhibited at the Bling a Bra Showcase on the 17 October 2014, where guests are able to vote for their favourite bra and winners will be announced by the judges. The bra with the most votes will receive the People’s Choice Award.
