We’ve launched the inaugural Christmas Windows Competition and all you have to do is vote for your favourite shopfront window and you’re in with a chance!

To vote, shop locally and look for festive shopfront window displays that display the striking red Christmas Manifesto sticker, visit and ‘like’ and ‘share’ the window you think really got into the Christmas spirit – it’s that easy!  

The competition runs from now until 31 December. Winners will be notified in the New Year.

If one in two Boroondara adult residents spent $20 locally this Christmas, it would generate over $1 million for our local businesses. Spending locally at a retail store, café or restaurant this Christmas will help sustain over 14,000 local jobs.
