Debbie Stiawalt of Beeler, Kansas, was the grand prize winner of the 2020 Down Country Roads contest.

Start gathering your photographs that reflect the best of rural America—crops, country landscapes, livestock, farm families and more. High Plains Journal's 2021 Down Country Roads calendar contest will be open for entries soon.

For the contest, we will be looking for high-resolution digital photos with a landscape (horizontal) orientation, not a portrait (vertical) or square orientation. We'd love to see scenes that capture rural life through all seasons.

More details about the contest and how to submit your entries will be posted soon at HPJ.com. See last year's winners now at hpj.com/calendar_contest.
