ENFIELD, Conn.— Have you captured a creative image on the farm, in the woods or at the dock that represents modern Northeast agriculture, commercial fishing or forest products? Share it with Farm Credit East by uploading your best photos to FarmCreditEast.com by July 31.
Winning photographs will be featured in Farm Credit East’s 2020 calendar. From all entries, 14 photos will be selected for a $100 prize each. Additional photos will be selected to fill the calendar pages, each earning a $25 prize.
“For more than a decade, we’ve received many photo submissions illustrating progressive agriculture operations,” says Kristie Matuszewski, Farm Credit East director of marketing and communications. “We look for fresh imagery that represents Northeast farming, horticulture, forestry and commercial fishing during every season, as well as shots that celebrate rural life in New England, New York or New Jersey.”
Winning photos are selected based on technical quality, clarity and composition, as well as photos that capture unique views of modern agriculture and life in the country. So take your camera out to the field, barn or dock, in the tractor cab, out on the open water, into the woods, or to the county fair, and send in the many views of agriculture enriching northeast rural communities.
“Last year, we received more than 700 images from dozens of talented photographers. We look forward to receiving many more entries this year,” said Matuszewski.
Only digital photos are accepted. Contest rules and an entry form, as well as inspiration from previous years’ calendars, can be found at FarmCreditEast.com/Calendar. The submission deadline is July 31, 2019.
