IT doesn't matter where you look on social media, there appears to be people bagging out the region they live in.

But many Bulletin readers are willing to stick up for their home town.

And what better way to do so by showing what they love best about living here in photographs.

The Bulletin ran a Reader Project on its Facebook page on the weekend, asking readers to take photographs over the weekend depicting why they love living here.

The project attracted 73 photographs by 10am Monday.

Because of the success of this project, The Bulletin is turning it into a competition. Readers can continue to submit photographs depicting what they love about the region via email (kerri-anne.mesner@capnews.com.au) by 5pm Friday.
