Barossa calendar unveiled | PHOTOS

The 2018 Barossa Calendar has been unveiled, revealing a stunning visual representation of the Barossa through the eyes of amateur photographers.

From a field of 190 entries, judges selected 13 photographs that best captured the essence of the region.

The calendar was launched by Barossa Mayor Bob Sloane at an exhibition at Barossa Regional Gallery on Friday, which remains in situ until the end of September.

Now in its third year, the initiative was spearheaded by The Barossa Council’s Visitor Centre to engage both the local community and visitors to the region.

Photographic themes spanned food, wine, heritage, events and landscapes, with the popular addition of a new children’s choice category.

Mayor Sloane congratulated the photographers and described the quality of entries as “outstanding”.

“These talented amateur photographers have beautifully captured the true spirit of the Barossa and showcased the remarkable diversity of our region,” he said.
