Photographs from our region’s top photographers are represented in the 2022 City of Greater Geelong calendar, which will be posted to 128,000 households this month.
The popular calendar features the winning images from the City’s annual photography competition which this year attracted more than 1300 entries. The 13 winning images were selected through an online public voting process.
An image of the much-loved, historic Geelong Carousel by Tash Dear was voted the most popular among the 2221 votes and was selected for the cover of the calendar.
In a surprising twist and amidst some family rivalry, Tash’s mother, Danka Dear, also has her photograph of the Floating Christmas Tree selected as the image for the month of December.
Amateur and professional photographers were invited to submit photos in the following four categories: nature, events and people, architecture and urban spaces, and landscapes.
Calendars are scheduled to be delivered mid-December and additional copies will be available from January.
The calendar helps to foster community pride, share important dates and information, and recognise the talent of local photographers.
