Local MP Darren Chester is encouraging photographers to make sure they get their photographs submitted to be considered for the 2022 #lovegippsland calendar.
Mr Chester said the competition which is currently open, would provide 13 images to be featured in the new calendar.
“Spring is a wonderful time in our region and it is a great time to get out with your camera and capture some of Gippsland’s beauty, if it is safe and appropriate to do so,” Mr Chester said.
“This year’s theme ‘100% Authentic Gippsland’ is a fantastic opportunity to showcase the diversity of the region.”
Mr Chester said plenty of keen photographers had already submitted their entries.
“My office has been overwhelmed with entries already and I am extremely impressed by the high calibre,” Mr Chester said.
“I encourage photographers looking to submit to have their entries in by October 13 to be considered for the calendar.”
More than 20,000 free copies of Mr Chester’s #lovegippsland 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.
