Western Star 2013 Calendar Competition

THE Western Star has chosen the finalists for our 2013 calendar, and now it's time for you to choose your 13 favourite snaps.

Vote on our online poll attached to have your say and make sure we have the best calendar in Queensland.

You can select up to 13 photos and the pictures which receive the highest overall votes will be the ones published in our calendar.

You don't have to give us an order of preference, simply select your favourite snaps.

We received dozens of applications for the competition and it was a very tough process whittling it down to our 27 finalists. 

The Western Star would like to thank everyone who entered.

If you have got friends or family who want to vote, but are not online, the photos will all be published in Friday November 23's paper.

You can cut out the coupon in the paper and return it to our office on McDowall Street.

Voting closes on Friday November 30.

There are a few things you should know before you vote.

1. If photos tie in the votes, but we don't have room for all of them, the Western Star reserves the right to pick which of the photos go through to the calendar.

2. The Western Star reserves the right to select which of the top 13 images will be on the front cover of the calendar.

3. We have taken names off the photos here to avoid any bias in the voting. However contestents should note if your image makes the calendar, you will be acknowledged. When the votes are closed we will also reveal the names of all the finalists and which photos they took online.
