Due to EMCCAN having to cancel our annual Caribbean Carnival Costume Competition we decided set two competitions;
Our online mask and head-dress making competition had a “Greener Carnival” theme using recycled materials anyone can find around their home. We organised four international headpiece and mask making workshops hosted by international artists to offer inspiration.
Below are all the entries from our King, Queen and children headpiece and mask competitions. These were a range of carnival artists to general public. Thank you to everyone who participanted
