Horizontal-layout, high-resolution images – both close-ups and panoramic shots – are needed of all types of agriculture in all seasons. Subject ideas include rural scenery; portraits of farmers and ranchers; planting or harvest shots; scenes from farm stands, on-farm events, farmers markets or county fairs and close-ups of fruits, vegetables, flowers, crops in the field or farm animals.
The deadline for entries is September 15 and there’s no limit to the number of photos that
can be submitted.
As thanks for participating, everyone who submits photos with their mailing address will receive a complimentary copy of the Oregon’s Bounty Calendar.
