Comp winner

Last year’s winning entry by Heather Radevski – photo taken Shepparton East.

I am now accepting entries for the sixth annual edition of my #ImProud calendar.

The 2022 calendar will be distributed across the entire Nicholls electorate, providing fantastic exposure for both established and amateur photographers.

Entries close Sunday October 29.


  • Your image should capture an element of what it means to live in the Nicholls electorate. The 2021 calendar was dominated by rural landscape photos – all of which were great – and while these images will again be considered, there will a greater emphasis on the characters (including animals!) among our communities, as well as rural activities and historic buildings;
  • Images must be in landscape form (ie. wider than it is tall), and either be colour or black and white. The photo may be lightly edited. Pictures taken on a mobile phone are welcome as long as they are high resolution;
  • The top 12 entries (as judged by Damian) will be used in the calendar, with photo credit, while the top photo will be used as the cover image and the photographer will receive a $100 gift voucher to the Goulburn Valley photography store of their choice;
  • Each entrant is entitled to submit three images;
  • Please call the office on 03 5821 5371 or email if you have any questions.
