Submit your photos for the Fields-of-Corn Contest

Published:

Dust off the lens and get your camera clicking. The National Corn Growers Association invites amateur and professional photographers alike to help tell the story of farming field corn in America through the third annual Fields-of-Corn Photo Contest.

Through this contest, NCGA captures high-resolution photos of corn growth from seed to harvest and the families that grow it. Even those who have already submitted can enter additional photos as participants will be able to submit multiple entries until November 30, 2016.

The Fields-of-Corn Photo Contest offers both amateur and professional photographers a free opportunity to share their work while competing for 19 cash prizes, including 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 the Soil Health Partnership’s new Conservation category. Additional first, second and third prizes will be awarded for the entries with the most “likes.”

The Fields-of-Corn Photo Contest is specifically geared toward photos of field corn and not sweet corn.

While entries will only be accepted until November 30, 2016, entries may accumulate “likes” until December 31, 2016. Winners will be announced January 2017.

Register, upload your best farm photos and come back often to submit new entries. To see the 2015 photos, check out the NCGA 2015 Annual Report.
