AFBF Wants Your Summer Pics

Kelly MarshallAFBF, Ag Group, Contest

AFBF-Photo ContestDon’t forget!  AFBF  is reminding you of the opportunity to take summer photographs in preparation for the 2015 Farm Bureau Photo Contest.  Any Farm Bureau member 18 years and older at the time of entry is eligible to submit pics, including state/county staff and professional photographers.

“Now is a great time to get pictures of farmers and ranchers working safely during harvest, working in the garden or even selling their goods at farmers’ markets,” said Kim Baker, AFBF’s assistant director, creative services. “The summer months offer endless opportunities to shoot diverse photos of American agriculture.”

Photo submissions will be used to accurately portray today’s agriculture and the safe practices of farmers and ranchers. Additionally, submissions will also be used for future publications, promotions and social media by AFBF and related companies. All photos submitted must exemplify safe practices on the farm or ranch.

The contest is open for submissions until March 31, 2016. Photos may be entered in four categories: Farm Families, Farm Labor, Technology and Consumer Outreach. Monetary prizes will be awarded to the top three placing photos from each category. First place winners will be awarded $150, second place $100 and third place $75.

Keep an eye on Farm Bureau’s social media and website to see the winners announced on April 15, 2016.
