The Kansas Department of Agriculture announced its second annual statewide agricultural photo contest.
KDA invites Kansas residents to submit photos that capture the special moments, hard work and breath-taking beauty of agriculture across the state.
The contest is divided into five categories, including Farm Faces; Picture Perfect Prairie; Agriculture at Work, From the Land of Kansas; and Rollin’ in the Hay, a special category for Kansas youth 19 and younger.
New to the contest this year, KDA will utilize Secretary Rodman, Kansas Board of Agriculture members and agricultural leaders in the Kansas legislature as well as the department’s social media to judge the photographs submitted. Visit agriculture.ks.gov/photocontest to learn more.
Contest winners will be determined by combining points from the secretary, state board members and legislative leaders with those accumulated on social media sites. Winners will be those with the highest points in each category.
Photos will be judged on creativity, quality and relevance to Kansas agriculture. They will be displayed at KDA and used on the department’s website, social media pages and various other marketing materials.
Winners in each category will receive $100 gift cards and the runner-up participants will receive $50 gift cards.
Photos must be submitted no later than 5 p.m. on Monday, July 15. Winners will be announced by Aug. 21, 2013.
