Entries for Geelong’s 2021 calendar photo competition close this Friday

Calendar cover for 2017 by Aaron Collins

A shortlist will be put to a public vote in September.

Gone are the days of wall calendars with cute kitten pictures, ‘funny’ cartoons and questionable motivational messages. Now it’s all about adorning your walls with stunning landscapes and natural beauties from the towns, cities and countries we love.

Each year the City of Greater Geelong create a wall calendar made up on photographs from amazing from local amateur and professional photographers, which are submitted through their annual calendar photo competition.

Designed to discover the very best snaps of our region, the competition attracts hundreds as snappers try their hand at producing one of the final 13 images that get selected for the calendar, which is free of charge for residents and delivered to over 110,000 residents’ homes and the City’s customer service and leisure centres.

Now the calendar photo competition has returned once again, and the City are calling for shutterbugs to share their ‘uniquely Geelong’ images for a chance to be featured in the next calendar.

Residents can submit photographs they have captured from around the region that fit into one of four categories – landscapes, architecture and urban space, nature, and events and people. Alongside the image, the entries must include a short explanation of why the image is uniquely Geelong and what it means to you.

Entries close on 28 August 2020 and a shortlist will be put to a public vote in September. You can submit your entry here.
