Picture Your Most Awesome Ag Scene!

Northeast Rural Living photo contest's top prize is $250. So get clicking!

American Agriculturist's 21st annual Northeast Rural Living Photo Contest wants your best shot - your "Awesome Ag Scene". We'll leave it to your imagination as to what that best photo might be. But it's one that gives your heart a lift whenever you think of it.

It might be a scene that captures life on your farm, a family gathering, a prize-winning moment at the fair – whatever you see as an awesome scene. Pictures with people, farm animals or wildlife are always more interesting.

Winning photos are eligible for up to $600 in prize money, with first prize worth $250. Entries must be received by July 20.

Send only photo prints or high-resolution digital images (jpeg files) that are in razor-sharp focus. No camera-phone prints or digital 4x6 prints under 400 dpi will be accepted.
