Attention amateur photographers! Delaware Farm Bureau has launched a photo contest showcasing agriculture in the First State. First prize in each of two age categories is $150; second prize, $100; and third prize, $75. Anyone can enter; entry fee is $5 per photo. The first entry for DFB members or their child or ward is free.
Young photographers, age 17 or younger by Sept. 30, 2018, may enter the “Budding Artist” category.
Agriculture in Delaware is as diverse as can be, with animals from chickens to buffalo, horses, swine, goats, sheep and more. Crops range from corn, soybeans and wheat to fresh vegetables and fruit. Original, unaltered photos should showcase Delaware agriculture, depicting subjects such as fresh food, farm products being grown or harvested, animals on the farm, family farm life, people working on a farm or ranch, technology use, consumer outreach or a rural scene. These categories are more fully described in the official rules at www.defb.org/photocontest.html.
The website includes links to download photo contest entry forms, official contest rules, judging criteria and score sheet, as well as instructions for entering online. A completed entry form must be attached to each mailed photo or accompany electronic entries.
A model release form must be submitted for each identifiable person in the photograph.
All photos become the property of DFB and will not be returned. Winning photos will be featured at DFB’s annual meeting and banquet and at the DFB office for one year.
Mail entries with check or money order to: Delaware Farm Bureau Photo Contest, Attn: Heather Kline, 3457 S. DuPont Hwy., Camden, DE 19934. Deadline is Sept. 30, 2018.
