The Missouri Department of Agriculture is reminding those interested that the deadline to enter the Department’s Focus on Missouri Agriculture Photo Contest is at 5pm Friday, June 11th.
The contest is open to amateur photographers throughout the state of all ages. Participants may enter up to three photos in the categories of Beauty of the Farm, Faces of the Farm, The Farmer’s Life, and Pride of the Farm. There is also a special category entitled “Children’s Barnyard” that is available for photographers ages 12 and under.
Entries will be judged on visual impact, creativity, memorable content and image quality, and must be submitted by 5 p.m. on Friday, June 11. To submit photos, amateur photographers can visit Agriculture.Mo.Gov/focus to complete the online form.
Photos submitted to the contest will be placed on the Department’s Flickr stream, and contest winners will be announced in July. The winning photos will be on display in the Agriculture Building at the Missouri State Fair in Sedalia Aug. 12-22.
