Crop Insurers Announce Photo Contest

Crop Insurers Announce Photo Contest
Crop insurers call on farmers to demonstrate severity of drought in online photo contest

National Crop Insurance Services on Monday announced that it will host a 90-day photo contest, beginning Aug. 20 and featuring farm photos taken during the 2012 drought—on track to be one of the driest years the nation has ever seen. 

The group is reaching out to all farmers suffering from these near-record drought conditions throughout the Midwest and Southwest and asking them to submit photos portraying the severity of the consequences these unpredictable weather conditions can impose on our nation’s farm families.

Uploading will begin on Aug. 20, and submissions will be accepted through 12 a.m. EST, on Friday, Sept. 21.

PICTURE (not so) PERFECT: Inclement conditions have Crop insurers calling on farmers to demonstrate severity of drought in online photo contest.

Once the submissions are in, visitors will be able to vote on the photos from Sept. 22 through Nov. 21. At the close of the contest, the top three photos will be ranked and awarded prizes, the first of which will be a new iPad.
