The Leichhardt electorate is home to some of Australia’s most breathtaking landscapes, ranging from the vibrant sunflower fields in Cairns to the turquoise coral cays of the Torres Strait and everything in between.
With such a diverse and beautiful backdrop, local photographers have endless opportunities to capture the essence of our communities, people, events, flora, and fauna.
Federal Leichhardt MP Warren Entsch is calling for photographs that showcase the iconic elements of our region for his thirteenth annual Leichhardt Community Calendar Competition.
Mr Entsch said the calendar receives an overwhelmingly positive response each year and he strives to feature a diverse array of subjects and locations within its pages.
“Creating this calendar is always a highlight of my year,” Mr Entsch said.
“This competition offers a fantastic platform for locals to display their photography talents to thousands of businesses across Far North Queensland.
“The 14 best shots – one for each month plus a front and back cover – will be featured in this year’s calendar, alongside the name of each photographer and details of where each photo was taken.”
“Our region is known for its natural beauty, but it’s the people who truly make it a wonderful place to live. I can’t wait to see the creative entries for this year’s competition.”
The southern boundary of Leichhardt is White Rock, and to the west, parts of Kuranda and Speewah are included within Leichhardt.
The boundary then extends west to the Gulf of Carpentaria, taking in all of Cape York and the Torres Strait.
