The City produces an annual wall calendar for residents of Greater Geelong. This year we produced and distributed more than 139,000 copies.
The calendar features photos of the Geelong region and details a variety of events, activities and special days to keep you up to date with what's happening locally. It also includes information on councillor contact details and your local waste collection calendar.
Photos in the calendar are selected through a process of public submissions through an annual competition. Each year, hundreds of high-quality images are submitted by amazing local snappers and the winning entries are chosen by community voting.
We would love to hear your thoughts on the content, format and distribution of the calendar, as well as what you think about the photo competition.
