Entries are now open for the 2015 American Farm Bureau Federation/American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture photo contest.
The contest is open to all Farm Bureau members and state/county staff above 18 years of age at the time of entry, including 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, Farm Bureau says.
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.
Contest winners will be announced April 15, 2016, on Farm Bureau's social media platforms and website.
