New calendar gives people reason to smile all year 'round
Wednesday, 21 December 2016
From sunsets to making the most of warm summer days, there's plenty to feel joyous about when it comes to the South West.
And now a new calendar is showcasing what it is about the region that makes locals and visitors smile.
Released by the South West Development Commission in time for the new year, the This South West Life wall calendar features the stunning winning entries in the State Government agency's popular annual photography competition.
Entrants in this years contest were asked to capture scenes from the South West that fit the theme "reasons to smile", with winning images ranging from a misty morning over the Blackwood River Valley to an outing at Gnomesville.
SWDC chief executive officer Anna Oades said the calendar was being made available for free to help promote the region.
"No matter where you live in the world, this calendar will provide a window into our wonderful region all year round," she said.
"We'd like to thank the talented locals and visitors who entered the photography competition and whose work is now helping us to promote what we have here in the South West."
The next photography competition, which will give people the chance to have their photos showcased in a 2018 wall calendar, will have the theme "spirit of the South West". It will open on January 1 2017 and close on June 30 2017.
