The top 13 entries will be included in Mr Chester’s 2021 calendar. The best three will receives prizes comprising some of Gippsland’s best produce.

“All Gippslanders know we live in the best part of Australia and the #lovegippsland calendar is a way we can celebrate what we love about where we live,” Mr Chester said.

“This year’s theme is ‘The Colours of Gippsland’. It’s about capturing the colours of our region, whether man-made or natural.

“I’m always impressed by the standard of entries that we receive for the calendar competition and I’m looking forward to seeing where our photographers find their inspiration this year.

“”The project helps to bring more visitors to Gippsland to support local business; and is also a timely reminder for locals about the amazing opportunities that exist right here in our backyard.

“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 past years.”
