Farm Bureau seeking photos for calendar
Those in the state of Oregon with high quality photos of Oregon's agriculture can now submit them for a calendar created annually by the Oregon Farm Bureau. The calendar, for the year 2022, seeks to showcase Oregon's natural beauty –- particularly on agricultural lands throughout the state.
The calendar has previously focused on the "people, the production, the landscape, the enjoyment," and anything that showcases what makes agricultural Oregon unique, according to a release from the bureau.
"Spring is a fantastic time to look for photo opportunities within Oregon agriculture," Communications Director Anne Marie Moss said. "Farmers markets have opened, fields are blooming and farmers are preparing for summer harvest."
Images sought must be horizontal format, high resolution and can include close-ups or panoramic views. Photos can be of all types of agriculture in a variety of seasons -– whatever stands out and showcases the beauty best will be chosen.
The deadline for the contest is Sept. 15 and the OFB provided guidance as to what kind of photos it is looking for.
"Subject ideas include close-ups of ag products, planting/harvesting crops, ranching scenes, panoramic views of farmland, people enjoying Oregon ag products, farm animals, portraits of Farm Bureau members, farming/ranching scenes from all seasons, to name just a few," the release said.
Entries to the contest need not to come from Farm Bureau members, and there isn't a limit on the number of photos a person can submit for the contest. Photographers will receive a photo credit on the calendar along with multiple free copies. Everyone who submits a photo will receive one free copy as well.
