Capture the essence of the region: Submit your nature photographs for 2024 calendar


However, individuals interested in participating should hurry, as the window for submitting photographs for the 2024 Goulburn Broken Catchment calendar is scheduled to close next month.

The calendar is known for its collection of local images and information on flora, fauna and natural landscapes.

GBCMA project co-ordinator Janice Mentiplay-Smith said the photo competition was a great way for local people to showcase their skills by photographing plants, animals and the environment.

“Each year we produce and distribute the calendars across the region,” Ms Mentiplay-Smith said.

“The competition has been running for more than a decade now and entering it has become quite a tradition for keen photographers and nature lovers.

“The images in this year’s calendar were chosen from more than 300 entries.”

Preference is given to photographs depicting local plants or animals in their natural state, insects, waterways or other natural features that narrate stories about the Goulburn Broken Catchment.

“We always receive extremely positive feedback on the quality of the calendar and the fact it contains amazing images of the local environment, taken by local people,” Ms Mentiplay-Smith said.

“I encourage everyone to grab their camera and get out into the natural environment and see what they can find.”

To participate, submit colour photographs between 2MB and 10MB in a landscape format as JPEG images.
