Utes can enter into up to eight categories – Town and Country, Best Street Ute, Classic (30 plus years), B&S Ball, Chicks, Feral, Work and 4x4. 

Six of the categories will be recognised under the Queensland Ag Shows which means winners can proceed to the Sub Chamber Finals and State Finals. 

The Best Street Ute will be judged on its immaculate presentation, while the B&S category will be looking for utes that show evidence they have attended a B&S Ball. 

To enter the Chicks ute category, the vehicle must be owned and registered by a female, while the Best Work Ute must display toolboxes and trade accessories as well as clear business or trade signage on the vehicle.

Entry into the competition is $10 per entry, with judging to be conducted at 8.30am on Sunday. 

In addition, owners can enter the two driving events – Circle Work and Barrel Racing – which take over the arena from 10.30am. 

The winners of each category can pick up $500. 

Entry into these events is $25. 

Nominations close on 6 July, with nominations forms able to be downloaded from
