Entries sought for ag photo contest

Entries will be accepted through Dec. 31 for an annual competition for photography depicting the Colorado agricultural industry.

“It is always exciting to see how people capture the beauty of agriculture in photos,” said Don Brown, Colorado commissioner of agriculture. “The diversity of Colorado agriculture truly shines in this contest.”

Entries to the “Colorado…it’s AgriCultural” photography contest must be submitted to the Colorado Department of Agriculture by e-mail with an official entry. Visit www.coloradoagriculture.com/aginsights for contest rules and an entry form.

Photographs must be taken in the 2018 calendar year and relate to Colorado agriculture in some way. Prizes will be awarded in six subject areas: crops, livestock, people, open professional, urban agriculture and ag from above. Professional photographers may only enter in the open professional category.

Entries will be evaluated on theme, creativity and technical quality. The overall winner will receive $150. Category winners will receive a “Colorado…it’s AgriCultural” prize pack.
