Enter American Farm Bureau’s photo contests, share your story

Like to take pictures? American Farm Bureau currently has two photo contests going on right now and you can win a chance at a cash prize.

For the #iAdvocate contest, farmers are asked to share their stories about advocating for agriculture with Farm Bureau. Ten contest winners will each receive a $100 Farm Bureau Bank gift card.

To enter, message a photo of yourself advocating for agriculture to the Farm Bureau’s Promotion & Education Facebook page. Photo entries should include an #iAdvocate white board or sign with a brief explanation of what you’re doing. Submissions will be uploaded to the “2016 #iAdvocate Campaign” album on the Promotion & Education Facebook page. Once you have been notified that your photo has been posted, ask others to “Like” and “Share” it on Facebook. Contest winners will be determined based on the highest number of “Likes” received for pictures within the album.

The contest is open through March 25.

The goal of the second contest is to accurately portray today’s agriculture and safe practices of farmers. All photos submitted in the American Farm Bureau Photo Contest must exemplify safe practices on the farm or ranch. The contest is open to all state and county Farm Bureau members and staff over the age of 18 at the time of entry, including professional photographers.

Three photos will be selected from each of four categories (technology, farm families, farm labor and consumer outreach). First place is $150, second is $100 and third is $75. Three Best in Show prizes will be awarded for the most dynamic photos submitted across all categories. Judges will select these top finishers from the winners from the three contest categories. Prizes will be awarded at the following amounts: Best in Show: $400; First runner-up: $300, and Second runner-up: $200.

All winners will be featured on AFBF websites and social media. The contest ends March 31. Enter today.
