CHARTERS Towers local Angela McLaren has snapped her way into the 2014 Elders calendar with her winning photograph “Got Supper” depicting children successfully catching a crab in the river in Cape York.
Ms McLaren outclassed more than 465 other entrants to capture the attention of judges in the annual Elders photo competition.
Now in its second year, the competition attracted more than 1000 entries from amateur photographers across Australia.
Thirteen photos depicting rural life were selected for the calendar, with images ranging from a farmer and his dog to crop dusting at sunset.
This year, Elders staff were also invited to provide some of their favourite shots from across the country, with the best shots also included in the calendar as a photo gallery.
General manager marketing and strategy Mark Geraghty said that the quality of entries was again first-class.
“The quality and calibre of entries was exceptional and it really challenged our judges to reduce the list down to 13 images,” Mr Geraghty said.
“Angela’s photo will be featured in 75,000 copies of the calendar, which are produced as a thank you to our clients for their continued support,” he said.
The calendar will be available in all Elders branches from (early December).
