One Agency Surf Coast is back in action with its annual Calendar Photo Competition, now making waves in its glorious fifth year!

Calling all you snappy-shuttered wizards out there, from the greenest of rookies to the seasoned lens pros – it’s your time to shine as you flaunt your photography prowess in the dazzling 2024 calendar.

Shaun O’Callaghan, the head honcho at One Agency Surf Coast, has a simple mantra for the eager contenders: Snap the heart and soul of Torquay, Jan Juc, Bellbrae, and Bells Beach (remember the magic postcode 3228).

Stay up to date with what’s happening in and around the region here.

“Whether it’s beautiful beaches, awe-inspiring landscapes, sick surf, mesmerizing sunrises or sunsets, vibrant wildlife, charming streetscapes, or captivating countryside – let your creativity run wild,” O’Callaghan says.

Hold your surfboards, though – this isn’t just any old competition. Local legend of the lens, Ed Sloane, is stepping back into the judging spotlight to sift through the eye-popping entries once again.

Grab your trusty DSLRs or even your mighty smartphones, folks! So long as your snaps can measure up to A4 size (at least 300 DPI), the canvas is yours to conquer.

Besides earning a spot in the coveted pages of One Agency’s calendar, the victorious photographers will soak in some well-earned glory through photo credits, a social media fanfare that’ll make the town buzz, media limelight, and other avenues of fame.

Oh, it’s not a one-sided affair – the public’s voice matters too! They’ll have their chance to champion their top pick from the batch of winners. Keep a weather eye on One Agency’s Facebook Page for the inside scoop.

And guess what? The 2024 calendars are up for grabs, free as the wind! Drop by the One Agency’s den at 22 Bristol Road, Torquay, towards the year’s end and snag your own piece of photo-filled paradise.
