Three winners have been chosen for the 2021 #lovegippsland calendar competition, organised by Federal MP Darren Chester.
Gippsland wildlife featured among the winners with a picture of a rainbow Lorikeet, taken by Rob Clay of Marlo and a Weedy Sea Dragon, taken by Holly Baird of Marlo both being selected.
Sharon Radon from Port Albert was also a winner with a beautiful scene of the Port Albert waterfront.
Mr Chester said he was impressed by the high calibre and diversity of the entries.
“We are so lucky living in Gippsland as we have some of the most beautiful scenery right on our doorstep which this year’s calendar captures well,” Mr Chester said.
“With over 500 entries it was a very difficult task to just choose 13 to showcase the wonderful colours and scenery of Gippsland.
“I hope this calendar inspires locals to get out explore Gippsland and support local businesses.”
The three winners will receive a hamper containing some of Gippsland’s finest produce, all other successful entries will receive a bottle of local wine.
Free copies of the #lovegippsland calendar will be distributed throughout Gippsland and will also be available from Mr Chester’s electorate offices in Sale and Traralgon.
