At Coolum and North Shore Coast Care we’re busy planning the 2017 edition of our much-loved Calendar.  The theme is Relationships in Nature but don’t let that limit you! We can make individual images ‘relate’ to each other in the design process. All we need is images on local native flora, fauna or memorable scenes. They can be photos or artworks inspired by nature.

The objective of the calendar is to help people appreciate the natural beauty of our area and to encourage photographers to share their favourite photos in a published format.  The Calendar Committee particularly invites submissions from young people. Please see the attached file for details on requirements and please submit photos to by 20 June.
