ABOUT THE COMP

Held in June each year, the Men on Men Art Competition coincides with Southern HiBearnation, the largest gathering of bears & their admirers in the Southern Hemisphere. Artworks must be of a masculine nature, and can be in the form of painting, stencil, street art, etching, drawing, photography, digital and mixed media. Of course, being a pub, there are size limitations and works must have been created within the preceding 12 months to be eligible. See below for competition guidelines.

The ever-popular MOM Open Day falls on the Saturday of the Queen’s Birthday weekend in June each year. This is the first official viewing and purchasing day and gives Laird punters the chance to bring their female friends and/or family to the Laird to check it all out. The Open Day is the only chance to cast your vote in the People’s Choice category.
