Two winners will be selected, one by the BVIC tourism team and the other by a public vote from a shortlist compiled by BVIC from all submissions received. Public voting will be open in the final week of Autumn from the 24 to 31  May, the winners will be announced on Saturday the 1st of June. 

Mayor Jess Jennings said autumn had always had a special significance for our community. 

“As the weather cools, the urban and natural landscapes transform into palettes of golds, reds, and oranges, setting a picturesque scene that contrasts beautifully with the region’s rich history and heritage.” he said. 

“It is a time when we traditionally celebrate our rich and diverse heritage, as well as the spectacular seasonal variation that is loved by locals and is such a strong drawcard for visitors to our region. This competition is a great way for the community to get creative and a great excuse to get out and explore the region”.
