Tips on placing online entries:-

When you initially register to use Showday Online, if you do not get your registration confirmation email, check your junk email.  If not there, redo your registrations and double check that you have entered your email address correctly.

Only one family member needs to register.  Select the class you want to enter eg Photography/Rural Life, and it comes up on the right hand column. Underneath type the name of the family member entering, the number of items they are entering in this class, then click 'Add Entry' - it is added to the list above it. Do this for each family member (the names will auto suggest after they are entered once).


Don't type anything in the 'Exhibit' box unless it is important for you to name your entry e.g. an art work with a title, or a name of a pet.


In each class, if you are entering more than one item, adjust the "Number of Entries' box near the bottom before you click on 'Add Entry'.


 “ADD BULK ENTRY" function is useful for schools or groups, for when you are entering more than one individual in the same class e.g. entering 5 children in Drawing – 9 to 12 Years.


At the Checkout Page, you will be able to purchase a Show Membership if you wish to support the Freds Pass Rural Show in this way.
