Our Community Calendar Competition 

Every year we look forward to the Community Calendar Photo Competition and Exhibition with great excitement and anticipation.

The Competition is open to all ages, free to enter and we invite you to submit an entry that captures the theme ‘My Upper Yarra – As seen through your eyes’.

Entrants must live, study, work in the Upper Yarra region defined as postcodes 3799 and 3797 and the towns of Hoddles Creek, Launching Place and Don Valley.

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 prize money on offer to reward our 12 winning entries, with two categories 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  guest Judges to assist.

Winners are announced in September, with the “FREE” Warburton and Yarra Junction Community Bank Calendar printed and available early December.
