Kansas farmers and ranchers know there is great beauty in agriculture, and photographers are encouraged to capture that beauty and share it with others through the Kansas Department of Agriculture’s annual photo contest. KDA began accepting photos last week, and will continue accepting entries until the end of August. Agriculture in the Fields, Animals of Agriculture, Agriculture in Town, Water in Agriculture, and County Fair categories will showcase the many places and ways we experience agriculture across the state of Kansas. In addition, there will be a separate Youth division, for young photographers age 19 and under. Prizes will be awarded to the top two winners in each of the six categories. Photo entries should be sent in .jpg format to KDA.PhotoContest@ks.gov. Entries must include a title and brief description, where and when the photo was taken, the photographer’s full name and age, entry category hometown and email address. Details can be found at www.agriculture.ks.gov/photocontest.
