MANHATTAN, Kan. – As agriculture in Kansas flourishes this summer, pull out a camera, capture the moment, and submit your photos to 2015 Kansas Department of Agriculture’s photo contest, beginning June 15, 2015.
Nearly every aspect of daily life can be tied to agriculture. Be creative with entries; agriculture can be more than the typical pasture, tractor and wheat field. Agriculture is the look in a farmer’s eye after a successful harvest, the lines of an irrigation system silhouetted by a sunset, shoots of soybeans breaking through the soil, the fullness of creeks and ponds after a much needed rain or the smile of young 4-H members as they care for a livestock project. Photos showcasing Kansas agriculture, taken any time of the year, are eligible for entry.
KDA serves to advocate for and promote the agriculture industry, the state’s largest industry. Photos capturing the beauty of Kansas agriculture can be used to advocate for the state’s largest economic driver.
Contest guidelines can be found at: agriculture.ks.gov/photocontest. After submission, the Kansas Department of Agriculture is granted permission to use any photograph for publications, social media, websites, displays, etc. without payment or other consideration from the photographer.
