Colorado's agricultural landscapes provide the perfect subject for photographers. It's once again time to capture the "spirit" of Colorado agriculture through pictures. The 21st annual "Colorado ... it's AgriCultural" photography contest is seeking entries as a way to celebrate the state's agricultural heritage.
"It is always exciting to see how people capture the beauty of agriculture in photos," said Commissioner of Agriculture Don Brown. "The diversity of Colorado agriculture truly shines in this contest."
Entries must be submitted to the Colorado Department of Agriculture via email with an official entry form by Dec. 31. All photographs must be taken in the 2018 calendar year and must relate to Colorado agriculture in some way. Prizes will be awarded in six subject areas: crops, livestock, people, open professional, urban agriculture and ag from above. Amateur and professional photographers are encouraged to enter, however, professionals may only enter agriculture-related photographs in the "open professional" category.
Judging will be based on theme, creativity and technical quality.
