Photography enthusiasts once again have the chance to have their work featured in a calendar which will be made available for free to promote the South West region.

The South West Development Commission is calling for people to send in their best shots for the chance of being a winner in the popular annual This South West Life photography contest.

“We all know the South West is a wonderful place to live, work and visit,” SWDC acting chief executive officer Anna Oades said.

“We’re challenging people to capture on camera the spirit of the South West in order to provide a glimpse of just how special our region really is.

“Enter today, and your photo could be displayed in people’s homes and offices next year.”

The competition is open to people of all ages, and both amateurs and professionals. Photos must be taken between January 1 2017 and June 30 2017 to be considered.

A total of 13 winning photos will be selected to feature in the 2018 This South West Life calendar, along with 13 runner-up winners.

One winner will have the additional honour of being the Chairman’s Choice, while another will receive the CEO’s recommendation.
