Oregon Farm Bureau is looking for citizen images of farming and ranching for its 2015 Oregon Bounty Calendar.
The award-winning calendar celebrates all aspects of Oregon agriculture: the commodities, the people, the production, the landscape, the enjoyment, anything that depicts the beauty, technology, culture, or tradition of family farming and ranching.
Summer is a great time to capture Oregon agriculture in the country — and in the city — so photographers, get your cameras ready! Horizontal-format, high-resolution images – both close-ups and panoramic views — are needed of all types of agriculture in all seasons. Subject ideas include the harvesting of crops, planting of crops, close-ups of ag products or crops in the field, panoramic scenes of farmland, people enjoying agriculture or ag products, farm animals, portraits of farmers/ranchers, farmers markets, county fairs, harvest festivals, farming scenes from all seasons.
Photographers with images selected for month pages in Oregon’s Bounty will receive a photo credit in the 2015 calendar, copies of the calendar, and a year of Farm Bureau membership if they have not already joined the organization.
The deadline for entries is Sept. 15, 2014.
Photo specifications and contest rules are available at oregonfb.org/calendar.
Photographers do not need to be Farm Bureau members to participate and there is no limit to the number of photos that can be submitted. The state’s largest general farm organization, Oregon Farm Bureau is a grassroots, nonpartisan, nonprofit organization representing the interests of the state’s family farmers and ranchers in the public and policymaking arenas. The calendar is sent to 61,000 Farm Bureau members around the state and hundreds more are distributed throughout the year.
