Theme: Our Vision
Our theme for the GPAI 2022 Calendar is Our Vision. By this, we mean the GPAI (Golf Programs Australia Incorporated) vision of a purpose built golf facility (PBGF) to provide wonderful training and work placement opportunities specifically for you, our valued athletes and students.

Winners (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th) will be selected to be included in the official 2022 Our Vision GPAI Calendar.

The 2021 Our Vision competition will be judged by our professional artists and founding members, Darrell and Michelle Dalton. They will decide on the winning 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th places. The winning artists will be awarded a page/month in the calendar displaying their artwork, as well as their photograph and brief description.
