Regional Council of Goyder held a successful community photography competition “Capturing Goyder through a Local’s Lens” to assist in the creation of the 2018/19 Community Calendar.

The competition encouraged local residents to submit images capturing the essence of living, or visiting, the Goyder region.

This is the Regional Council of Goyder’s first competition for the yearly community calendar and council received an overwhelming response of entries which showcased all that the Goyder region has to offer.

Thank you to all our community judges for their enthusiastic involvement within the competition.

The quality and diversity of the entries made it a very difficult process for all the judges in determining the thirteen photos to be included in the calendar.
