Oregon Farm Bureau seeks photos for 2015 calendar

Summer is a great time to capture Oregon agriculture in the country — and in the city - and now the Oregon Farm Bureau is asking photographers to help it share the beauty of the state’s bounty by submitting images for the 2015 “Oregon’s Bounty” calendar.

The award-winning calendar celebrates all aspects of Oregon agriculture, from the people who farm the land and the products they grow to the family gatherings where it’s all enjoyed — anything that depicts the beauty, technology, culture or tradition of family farming and ranching.

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 and harvest festivals.

The deadline for entries is Sept. 15.

There’s no limit to the number of photos that can be submitted, but they must all be in a horizontal format to fit the calendar layout, available in high resolution (300 dpi or higher) and submitted in .jpeg or .tif formats. Images of people may require a signed release, so photographers shouldn’t submit photos of people they don’t know.

Photographers whose images are selected for “Oregon’s Bounty” will receive a photo credit in the 2015 calendar, copies of the calendar and a one-year Farm Bureau membership if they have not already joined the organization. Farm Bureau membership is not required for participation in the contest.

Photo specifications and complete contest rules are available online at oregonfb.org/calendar.

Oregon Farm Bureau is a grassroots, nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that represents 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.
