Campaspe calendar is ready for 2020

By Country News

The #MyCampaspe 2020 calendar is now available, showcasing the best photography of local scenery in the Campaspe region.

This year, Amee Hardess’ photograph called Autumn fall and little cowgirl boots was the winner with 175 votes.

Her photo was displayed on Facebook, where the Campaspe community voted for their favourite image to be used as the front cover of the calendar.

Campaspe Shire Council had a big task when selecting the winning photographs to be uploaded on Facebook, after receiving about 180 entries.

The calendar displays 14 photographs submitted by locals and visitors as part of the annual photo competition.

The photographs were judged on celebrating the character of the region and the people within it.

Many of the images were captured on mobile phones and council said professional cameras were becoming unnecessary.

Key dates are outlined on the calendar including public holidays, local events, school terms, days of recognition, grants and other application dates and council meetings.

The calendars have been developed since 2012 and council said demand for the calendars had increased annually, with many people sending copies to family and friends overseas as Christmas presents.

The #MyCampaspe calendar is available from all council customer service centres, Campaspe libraries and other council facilities.
