We invite you to answer the CALL OF THE WILD to capture images for next year's Community Calendar


The Town of Mosman Park invites you to answer the call of the wild by capturing images for its 2020 Community Calendar themed Wild Mosman Park.

Mayor of Mosman Park, Brett Pollock said: “Although we live in metropolitan Perth, our Town has many wild places – bushland, ocean and river.  We want everyone to get out there and capture this wildness – birds, animals, places and even people doing wild things here in Mosman Park.”

He said the 2018 and 2019 Community Calendars had been extremely popular with residents, featuring the dogs of Mosman Park, and drone photography, and for next year the Town is keen to build on the excitement that residents have each year in getting their calendar by showcasing content that is striking, local and inspiring.

“There are stunning wild creatures living here – from Tawny Frogmouths, Carnaby’s Black Cockatoos and other beautiful birds; to seahorses and colourful fish and other river creatures in Chidley Reserve, as well as colourful wildflowers.  The diversity of flora and fauna we have in our Town is surprising, and this is something we have worked hard to preserve and maintain by protecting the Town’s wild places.”

Submissions are now open and will be accepted until the end of August and Mayor Pollock said he looked forward to viewing the entries as they came in.  Photographers of all ages and levels of experience are invited to submit high resolution images that reflect their interpretation of the theme Wild Mosman Park

The Town will share the entries via social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) and invite residents and the general public to vote on which images should be included.  Submissions would not be paid, but the winning entries will receive full attribution and be published in full colour in the Community Calendar that will be printed and available from the Town’s Administration Centre and The Grove Library.

He welcomed entries from people of all ages, particularly from the Town’s young people, including the thousands of students who study in our Town each week, encouraging them to get out there and capture wild Mosman Park.  “You don’t need a fancy camera – just a smartphone will do, and a sense of adventure!  We are excited to see what wild things will be captured by our local shutterbugs,” Mayor Pollock said.

Entrants should send their high resolution images, including the full name of the photographer, by email to media@mosmanpark.wa.gov.au by close of business Friday 30 August 2019.

Here are some examples of the kinds of images we are seeking, although you are only limited by your imagination!
