Bendigo Cup 2016: Bendigo Advertiser and Neon Peach Style Stakes


Show off your style at the 2016 Jayco Bendigo Cup on October 26 and you could go in the running to win a share in $1000 worth of Neon Peach vouchers.

First prize will receive a $500 voucher, second a $300 voucher, and third a $200 voucher.

There are two ways to enter the Style Stakes this year – either by taking your own photo (or getting a friend to do it for you); or by having a Bendigo Advertiser photographer take it on the day for the competition.

Please note, as we will have many Bendigo Advertiser photographers taking photos on the day, please make it clear to the photographer if you would like to be entered in the Style Stakes competition.

The winners will be decided by public vote on the Bendigo Advertiser website from Friday, October 28. 


  • VIA INSTAGRAM: Take a full-length photo of you in your Cup style and upload it to Instagram by noon on October 27. Make sure to include the hashtags #bendigoadvertiser and #neonpeach.
