VFA 2021 Calendar Photo Competition

It's back! After the success of the 2020 calendar comp, we're on the lookout for more amazing photos to use in our 2021 calendar and we'd love your help!

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to take photos of fish, landscapes, sunsets, sunrises and popular fishing destinations in Victoria.

Each month will have one species entry and one landscape/destination entry per person selected, as well as the coveted front cover and inside cover.

Winners will have bragging rights, be published in our 2021 calendar and receive a $50 voucher to use at your local tackle store and a VFA fishing pack which includes a tackle box and Tassie devils.

To enter:

1. You must fill in the entry form below and agree to the terms and conditions to be considered a valid entry.

2. Facebook: Post or inbox your photos, and upload with #vicfisheries2021 so we can identify your entry. In your image caption, make sure you let us know what the photo is of (e.g. Aussie bass from Gippsland).


Instagram: Tag your photos with #vicfisheries2021, letting us know what the photo is of.

Have a look at some recent winning entries to get you inspired!
