The National Corn Growers Association calls on photographers to help tell the story of farming field corn in America through the first annual Fields-of-Corn Photo Contest. Through this contest, NCGA hopes to capture high-resolution photos of corn growth from seed to harvest and the families that grow it. The contest is open now, and interested participants will be able to submit multiple entries until Nov. 30.
Open to all, the Fields-of-Corn photo contest offers a free opportunity for photographers to share their work while competing for a $500 grand prize. Entries will also be considered for prizes with cash awards for the top three entries in five categories including: Farm Family Lifestyle, Farming Challenges, Growing Field Corn, Scenery/Landscape, and Still Life from the Farm.
Note that the Fields-of-Corn Photo Contest is specifically geared toward photos of field corn and not sweet corn.
Photos will be ranked by members of the public, who will be asked to select their favorites using online Facebook “Likes.” The Top 10 photos in each category will then be judged by an impartial panel of professionals in the fields of journalism, marketing, advertising and agriculture. The panel’s decisions are final.
