Can you capture the beauty and diversity of Illinois’ agricultural landscape in just one picture? Express your inner artist and your love for agriculture in the farm bureau’s photo contest.
The Illinois Farm Bureau is looking to its members and their families to bring rural life into focus with Picture Illinois, their 2014 photo contest from June 1 through November 1.
The contest is open to all Illinois Farm Bureau members and their families. Entries must be from amateur photographers who submit shots taken in Illinois. Employees and immediate family members of Illinois Farm Bureau and its affiliated companies are not eligible.
Your pictures can include any one of these three categories:
- Country Kids
- Rural Routes
- These Boots Are Made For…
The grand prize winner will receive $150. Three first place winners will be awarded $75 each, three second place winners will receive $25, and the photo selected as “Members’ Choice” at the Farm Bureau’s annual meeting in December will receive $50. The winners will be announced in Partners and FarmWeek.
