Time to put your photography skills to the test and head out on a hunt for the best farm-related photos. The Effingham Daily News is asking readers to show life on the farm for the newspaper’s annual Farm Fair Photo Contest.
Submit photographs for a chance at publication in our annual Farm Fair editions at the end of this month and early August and have an opportunity to win a little extra cash if the photograph is chosen as the best of the crop in one of four categories: Best Farm Scene, Best Farm Moment, Best Photo by a Child and Best Overall Photo. The first three categories carry a $25 cash prize while the best overall photo carries a $50 prize. The Best Photo by a Child category is for entries taken by children who are age 12 and under.
All photos submitted to the contest must be farm or rural-lifestyle related. No professional photos will be accepted.
The winning photos, as well as a selection of the other photos submitted, will run in a section of this year’s Farm Fair.
Photos must be submitted to the EDN by 5 p.m. July 16. The following information needs to be included with the photo when submitted: the name, address and phone number of the person submitting the photo; the name of the person who took the photo; and a caption for the photo, including a list of names of any persons in the photo, where and when the picture was taken and what the photo is about. Each person is allowed to enter five photos in the competition.
Entries may be dropped off at the EDN office at 201 N. Banker St., Effingham; mailed to Effingham Daily News, PO Box 370, Effingham, IL 62401; or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
