Coolum calendar calls for cameraman talent

KEEN photographers are encouraged to submit some of their best coastal snaps for consideration in the calendar of the year.

Coolum and North Shore Coast Care are looking for entrants for their 2019 calendar, which is sold as a fundraiser across the Sunshine Coast.

Profits go towards the group's environmental initiatives.

Calendar co-ordinator Diane Goodwillie thought the publication was a chance for photographers to work with a North Shore-based not-for-profit, and get their name out in the community.

"We estimate that it goes to over 20 countries worldwide and some businesses purchase them for their clients,” she said.

"The profits support the turtle care, bush regenerations and many educational projects of Coolum and North Shore Coast Care.

"We particularly hope young photographers will send us their photos. It's a good way for them to learn to observe the Sunshine Coast's exceptional and attractive habitat.”

Although the co-ordinator couldn't offer any advice, she said judges were looking for an array of landscapes.

"We're lacking photos of Sunshine Coast wetlands, mangroves, salt marshes, Mt Emu, Mt Ninderry and especially native animals in natural settings.”

Entries are open until May 31 for the coveted 12 spots.

Submissions should be sent as a high-resolution image with the snapper's details to calendar@coolumcoastcare.org.au.

For more information, phone Diane on 0406 605 700.
