Capturing the essence of the local environment

It’s on again, the annual Photo Competition for the Broken Boosey and Whroo Goldfields Conservation Management Network (CMN) 2012 calendar.  Held each year, the photo competition has almost become a local ‘tradition’, and is a fantastic way for local people in the Broken Boosey and Whroo Goldfields Conservation Management Network regions to showcase their photographic skills.   

It’s on again, the annual Photo Competition for the Broken Boosey and Whroo Goldfields Conservation Management Network (CMN) 2012 calendar.  Held each year, the photo competition has almost become a local ‘tradition’, and is a fantastic way for local people in the Broken Boosey and Whroo Goldfields Conservation Management Network regions to showcase their photographic skills.   

Both CMNs are in Box Ironbark region within the Goulburn Broken catchment, so any photos of plants, animals, insects, waterways or other natural features such as landscape shots or beautiful sunsets or sunrises are just the thing needed to feature in the calendar.    

CMN Coordinator Janice Mentiplay-Smith explains “Each year the CMNs produce and distribute 5000 calendars with the support of the Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority across the region.”  

“We always receive extremely positive feedback on the quality of the calendar, and the fact it contains amazing images of the local environment taken by local people. I encourage everyone to grab the camera and get out into the natural environment and see what they can find.”   

The photos are judged by the CMN Committees and local school groups, and there are prizes for the winning pictures. ” 

If you would like a copy of the 2011 Calendar or more information on the photo competition contact the Conservation Management Network Coordinator Janice Mentiplay-Smith at the Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority janicem@gbcma.vic.gov.au before the 31st of August 2011.  

Photos can be emailed (JPEG image no larger than 5MB and no smaller than 2MB) or alternatively hard copies can be delivered to the Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority, 168 Welsford St, Shepparton.
