2025 Community Calendar ‘Get Amongst It’ photography competition

Calling all talented photographers and creative visionaries! Here's your golden opportunity to capture the essence of the City of Swan through your lens and have your work featured in our much-anticipated 2025 Community Calendar.

This year, our theme is "Get Amongst It," focusing on the vibrant life captured throughout the City. We want to showcase the energy, diversity, and beauty of our community as people get amongst activities and embrace the local landscape.

Are you passionate about exploring our stunning landscapes, discovering hidden gems or immersing yourself in our community? We want you to show us how you get amongst it in Swan.

It could be an image of your children laughing at a park, athletes participating in a sports event or community connections forming at a local market – whatever makes Swan special to you.

The 12 winning entries will feature in the City’s 2025 Community Calendar. Each winner will also receive a $200 gift card.

Entries close September 29, 2024.
