An early morning captured at Bastion Point in Mallacoota has won the 2020 #lovegippsland calendar competition, organised by Federal MP Darren Chester.
The winning photo, taken by Martin Ascher of Mallacoota, was chosen from more than 350 entries.
Geoff Parrington from Sale won second place with a picture of the iconic Rubeena in Sale and third place went to Kim Gleeson of Sale with an image of the Sale Botanic Gardens.
Mr Chester said he was impressed with the high calibre of entries and the final calendar represented the diversity of the region.
“We live in a beautiful part of the world and it is reflected in the array of images we have received, which always makes it a very difficult task to choose 13 photographs to showcase,” Mr Chester said.
“I hope this calendar helps to inspire everyone to get out and explore our region and support local businesses throughout Gippsland.”
The winners will receive accommodation prizes, thanks to Frog Gully Cottages Longford, Captains Cove Paynesville and Bridges on Argyle Traralgon.
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.
