Now is the time to dig out your old photo albums and enter the 2019 Heritage Calendar photo competition which opens today.

The 2019 calendar, Architecture: Past and Present, will showcase a mixture of both old and contemporary architecturally diverse, well-designed and historic buildings across the Sunshine Coast.

Heritage Portfolio Councillor Rick Baberowski said the annual heritage calendar provided a wonderful opportunity to showcase important aspects of our region’s history hidden in personal photo collections.

“This is the fourth year we have reached out to the public to feature photos from community life in the annual calendar,” Cr Baberowski said.

“This year’s theme Architecture: Past and Present is an exceptional way to present the built form history of the Sunshine Coast, its diversity and how buildings tell a detailed story about our region’s changing character and social history.

“We are inviting all community members to get scrummaging in drawers and send in their favourite photos of what they think are the Sunshine Coast’s iconic buildings.

“This year’s calendar was a sell-out, with its 12 months of historic photographs celebrating Playtime…Celebrating leisure, sport and recreation as a tribute to the Commonwealth Games.

“I encourage anyone with a captivating or unusual picture featuring a building long gone or still standing on the Sunshine Coast to enter.”

Winners selected for inclusion in the calendar will have their photo credited in the calendar, receive a canvas print of their winning entry, five copies of the 2019 calendar to share with family and friends and an invitation to the calendar launch event.

Applications close at 5pm, Monday, August 20.

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

To enter, images can be submitted online or in person through Sunshine Coast Libraries or council’s Customer Contact Centres. Photographs must be owned by the entrant and be available in high resolution digital format, or originals available for scanning.
