The annual photo contest of National Corn Growers Association, Fields-of-Corn.com started in 2014 to help tell the story of farming field corn in America. Since its start, NCGA has collected 2,000 photos across ten categories and awarded more than one hundred cash prizes.
A few updates have been made for the 2019 contest:
- Stricter resolution requirements are in place, so photographers should use their equipment’s highest resolution settings.
- The single, most popular photo with Facebook “likes” will be awarded a $500 prize.
- First ($300), Second ($200), Third ($100), prizes will be awarded for each of seven categories and, as in prior years, judges will select a single Grand Prize winner to be awarded $500.
- New category: True Grit, Women’s Edition
Visit Fields-of-Corn today to enter your best farm photos, and vote for your favorite photos.
Open to all, entries will be accepted through Nov. 30 and will be available to accumulate Facebook “likes” through December. Winners will be announced in January of 2020.
