Farm Bureau seeks photo submissions
The Oregon Farm Bureau is seeking submissions of photos of Oregon's agriculture business for potential inclusion in the 2019 Oregon's Bounty calendar.
The calendar strives to capture all aspects of Oregon's agriculture industry, ranging from the people and products to the cultivation and landscape. Twelve photographers will be selected to have their work featured.
Subject ideas include rural scenery, portraits of farmers and ranchers, farmers and ranchers at work, planting or harvest shots, scenes from farm stands, on-farm events, farmers markets or county fairs or close-ups of fruits, vegetables, flowers, crops in the field or farm animals.
The deadline to enter is Saturday, Sept. 15. Everyone who shares photos will receive a complimentary copy of the 2019 Oregon's Bounty calendar. Photographers with images selected to be featured in Oregon's Bounty will receive a photo credit.
