Fields-of-Corn.com, the official photo contest of the National Corn Growers Association (NGCA), is set to relaunch on the first of September. Along with a new look built to showcase the rich history of visual storytelling comes a more robust interface for entry. The reboot comes just in time for the tenth photo contest.
“Fields-of-Corn.com site will house voting for the first time with higher reliability than we had through social media in the past,” said Graphic Communications Manager Beth Musgrove. “With a shared vision for a better experience for photographers, voters, and end-users, the developers assigned to the original 2014 contest were eager to return and take the site to a higher level.”
Open to all, NCGA invites photographers to help tell the story of farming field corn in America. Through this contest, NCGA seeks high-resolution photos to document the rich history of growing corn, captured from seed to harvest as well as the tenacious families that grow it. Entries will be accepted through the end of November and will be available to accumulate votes directly through the website, closing on December 31.
Photographers will be competing for 26 awards over eight categories. Visa gift card prizes range up to $500. Winners will be announced in January 2024.
