All accepted entries are included in our photo exhibition and automatically entered into the competition to find 12 winning entries to feature in our annual Community Bank Calendar. There is also prizemoney on offer to reward our 12 winning entries, with one category dedicated to recognising our Under 18 entrants.
To determine the 12 winning entries we invite the Community to get involved and vote for their favourite, as well as voting by our Community Bank branch staff and to round it out we also invite two guest Judges to assist.
Winners are announced in September, with the “FREE” Warburton and Yarra Junction Community Bank Calendar printed and available early December.
