Farm Credit East is currently seeking creative images of modern Northeast agriculture, commercial fishing and forest products to fill the pages of its 2023 Agricultural Views calendar. Upload your picturesque images from the farm, woods or dock at FarmCreditEast.com/Calendar by July 31 for a chance to win $100.
Winning photographs will be featured in Farm Credit East's 2023 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 nearly two decades, 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, or into the woods, and send in the many views of agriculture enriching Northeast rural communities.
“Last year, we received more than 900 images from dozens of talented photographers. We look forward to reviewing this year’s entries," 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, 2022.
