This year’s ‘a whole new life’ photo competition attracted many eye-catching photographs that showcased nature, magical destinations and life in its many forms.

GemLife Director of Sales and Marketing Andrew Coulter said the competition gave residents a chance to explore their artistic side and capture some of the magnificent sights and experiences that are so prevalent in their daily lives.

“We received so many wonderful photographs from residents who put their creativity and camera skills to the test to share special moments and some of the things they love most about their GemLife communities and surroundings, for all to see.

“Our many GemLife resorts are set in much-sought after, premium locations in areas that are surrounded by an abundance of natural beauty and judging by this year’s entries, it has not been lost on our residents, who appreciate every aspect of their over-50s lifestyle resort,” he said.

The task to select the winning photographs to feature in GemLife’s 2022 calendar was a difficult one.

“We’d like to thank everyone that took part and submitted their photographs. We only wish there were more months in a year, so we could feature more of them,” said Mr Coulter.

Congratulations to Judy Moore, Shane and Robyn Bell, Chalon Lee, Robyn Ernest, Ian Mibus, Marshall Cass, Beverly Sundstrom, Noel Ernest, Mary Pashco, and Patrick and Jennifer Mackenzie.
