I am now accepting photo entries for the fourth annual #ImProud Calendar for 2020. This calendar will be distributed to every home and business in the Nicholls electorate, so will be fantastic exposure for both established and amateur photographers.

Entries close 11:59pm Monday September 30, so get snapping!

If there is someone whose work you’d love to see in the calendar next year, make sure you share this page with them.

Rules

  • Everyone who lives in the Nicholls electorate is welcome to enter three images.
  • Your image/s should capture an element of life in the Nicholls electorate. This can be anything – if it happens here in Nicholls, we want to see it! You can see some examples below.
  • Image/s must be in landscape format (‘sideways’ or more wide than it is tall), and either be colour or black and white. The image/s may be lightly edited to fix minor issues such as contrast.
  • Image/s taken on a mobile phone are welcome as long as they are high resolution. Unfortunately we can’t print low resolution images well enough for them to feature in the calendar.
