National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) geared up for the tenth edition of the photo contest with an exciting relaunch. The website underwent a streamlined transformation, designed to pay homage to the captivating history of visual storytelling. Alongside this, a more user-friendly interface has been implemented to streamline the submission process.


"I'm thrilled to see the surge of entries on our updated website. The enhanced interface has truly made a difference, and it's incredibly rewarding to witness so many talented photographers share their unique perspectives on American corn farming,” said Graphic Communications Manager Beth Musgrove. “Each entry tells a story, and I can't wait to see this year’s images stitched together to tell the story of 2023’s planting, growing and harvest seasons."


Open to photographers of all levels, the contest invites participants to help tell the story of farming field corn in America. NGCA is seeking high-resolution images that document the entire journey of growing corn, from seed to harvest, as well as the dedicated families behind it. Submissions will be accepted until the end of November, with voting accessible directly through the website until December 31.


Photographers will have the chance to compete for 26 awards across eight categories, with Visa gift card prizes reaching up to $500. The winners of this esteemed contest will be announced in January 2024.
