Corangamite residents asked to snap their 'Local Heroes'

The Corangamite Shire Council is asking local residents, who is their local hero?

If that person lives, works or volunteers within the shire, then an image of them can be enterered in the Council’s 2021 calendar competition.

Mayor Neil Trotter said the calendar was a great way to recognise the efforts of our local heroes.

“The theme, ‘Local Heroes’ is open to interpretation, we are lucky to have so many people in the Shire who do incredible work to support our communities" he said.

“Very often they fly under the radar and don’t look for recognition, this is an opportunity to let them know they are appreciated and the rest of us are grateful for what they do"

Cr Trotter said the competition was open to professionals, amateurs and enthusiasts of all ages who earn, learn or live in the Corangamite Shire.

Youth Mayor Tess Lourey said the Corangamite Youth Crew is planning to hold some photography training sessions in October and successful entries will be exhibited online and at various locations across the Shire in 2021.

A panel comprising the Mayor, Youth Mayor Chief Executive Officer and Communications Coordinator will select the final 13 photos based on the quality of the photograph and balanced representation from across the Shire.

The 2021 Calendar will be distributed to every Corangamite Shire household in December 2020, winners will receive a small gift and some calendars.

To enter, go to www.corangamite.vic.gov.au/localheroes where you will find the Terms and Conditions and can upload your photo and explanation of why the person your hero.
