Colorado ag is focus of annual photo contest
From rolling green fields and helpful pollinators to patriotic cowboys and cattle in the morning light, the beauty of Colorado agriculture is evident. It’s once again time to capture the spirit of Colorado agriculture through pictures. The 20th annual “Colorado…it’s AgriCultural” photography contest is seeking entries as a way to celebrate the state’s agricultural heritage.
“For 20 years we’ve showcased Colorado agriculture through contest pictures,” said Commissioner of Agriculture Don Brown. “The one thing that remains constant is the beauty and bounty that our agricultural lands provide.”
Entries must be submitted to the Colorado Department of Agriculture via email with an official entry form by Dec. 31. All photographs must be taken in the 2017 calendar year and must relate to Colorado agriculture in some way. Prizes will be awarded in six subject areas: Colorado cuisine, crops, livestock, people, open professional and wildlife in agriculture. Amateur and professional photographers are encouraged to enter; however, professionals may only enter agriculture-related photographs in the open professional category.
