With entries now closed for the Fields-of-Corn Photo Contest, the National Corn Growers Association invites everyone to help select the submissions which best tell the story of farming and harvesting field corn in America. Through this contest, NCGA captured more than 400 high-resolution photos of corn growth from seed to harvest and the families that grow it. During the month of December, log-on and help pick the pics that will receive prizes.
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.

It is important to note that the Fields-of-Corn Photo Contest is specifically geared toward photos of field corn and not sweet corn. If you are interested and would like to learn more about how to tell the difference, click here for NCGA’s “Tale of Two Corns.”
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 with no discrimination towards sex, race, gender or age. The panel's decisions are final.
