Calling all Kenilworth pictures

You’re invited to share your photos of summers past to enter Sunshine Coast Council’s 2022 Heritage Calendar photo competition.

This year’s theme is ‘The Great Outdoors…Celebrating fun days of sun and adventure.’

Send us your old photos of camping out in the hinterland, hiking, lazy days spent at the beach, drives in the country, even flying high above the region!

The competition is now open and closes on 16 August, entry is free and winning photos will be included in the calendar.

The winning photos will feature in the calendar along with photographer credits and winning contributors will receive a canvas print of their winning entry, five copies of the 2022 calendar to share with family and friends and an invitation to the calendar launch celebration in October.

The Heritage Levy funded calendar is produced annually to celebrate and remember the region’s heritage.
