Allianz’s Spotlight Your Sparkle competition

Allianz recognises what a special time of year Christmas is – it brings together family, friends and the wider community through festive traditions and holiday cheer. In Australia, Christmas light displays are a hugely popular way to celebrate the season with four in five Aussies believing that festive lights are an important part of how we celebrate Christmas. To help celebrate and encourage more Aussies to share their festive sparkle with their local community, we have launched Allianz’s Spotlight Your Sparkle competition! Partnering with News Corp, Allianz is running a national competition to find the homes with biggest and brightest Christmas light displays.



We’ve also brought on board international award winning designer and TV presenter Jamie Durie as Allianz’s Chief Festive Officer to spread the festive spirit, and help pick the winning homes. One lucky winner from each participating state will receive $1,000 for the best looking festive display for that state, PLUS we will donate $1,000 to an Australian charity of the winner’s choice.
