A PHOTOGRAPH showing a Goondiwindi farmer mustering sheep has been selected by Elders to appear in its annual calendar.
The photograph, titled Dad Mustering, was taken by Bec McMillan of "Burilda", Goondiwindi.
It was one of more than 1200 entries in the Elders Photo Competition. Winners of the competition will have their photo included in the Elders annual calendar, which showcases typical country Australia shots.
Miss McMillan entered the competition for the first time after taking the photo late last year.
A student at the University of Queensland's Gatton campus, Miss McMillan was thrilled to learn it would appear in the national publication.
"It's pretty cool," she said.
"I just like taking photos."
Elders general manager marketing and strategy, Mark Geraghty, said the 2013 calendar will include photographs by members of the public for the first time.
"Australians are passionate about agriculture and we share that passion and wanted to showcase what agriculture means to them," Mr Geraghty said.
"Elders produces the calendar every year as a way of celebrating rural life and to thank our clients for their business."
The competition ran throughout July and August.
Amateur photographers were able to enter one photo in each of the seven categories - Property/farm, Family/people, Rural landscape, Everyday rural life, Livestock, Crops/Produce and the Business of Farming
The calendars will be in branches across the country in November.
