Local MP Darren Chester is encouraging Gippslanders to enter their best photographs in the 2022 #lovegippsland calendar competition.
Mr Chester said the competition was now open and the winning photos would be featured in the annual calendar.
“I love Gippsland and this calendar showcases the best Gippsland has to offer, with 13 pictures chosen for the final version,” Mr Chester said.
“Each year I am amazed at the high standard and overwhelming amount of entries my office receives.”
Mr Chester said this year’s theme ‘100% Authentic Gippsland’ was an opportunity to showcase the diversity of the region.
“We are so lucky to live in this part of the world with the mountains, bush and ocean right at our doorstep,” Mr Chester said.
“Taking the photographs may be a little more difficult this year due to coronavirus restrictions, but I am confident the standard will be as high as it has been in the past.”
More than 20,000 free copies of the calendar will be available across Gippsland at the end of this year.
Photographers are also encouraged to upload their photos to social media using the hashtag #lovegippsland.
To enter the #lovegippsland calendar competition, photos must be a minimum size of 4MB to a maximum of 10MB. If photos are selected for inclusion in the calendar, they must be available in a resolution of greater than 4MB at 300dpi. Photos should be landscape orientation as per the calendar’s shape. Entrants need to provide their name, hometown and contact details, plus a caption for their photo.
