Shutterbugs across Colorado with a love for the state’s agriculture are encouraged to capture it in pictures during the 18th annual “Colorado…it’s AgriCultural” photo contest.

“It is wonderful to see the diversity of Colorado agriculture through photographs,” said Commissioner of Agriculture Don Brown. “The contest is a great way to showcase agriculture across the state.”

The aim of the contest is to capture the “spirit” of Colorado agriculture in one of five areas: agritourism, crops, livestock, people and open professional. Professional photographers must submit their photos to the open professional category.

Entrants are allowed to submit up to three photos and the winner will receive $150. Category winners will be awarded a “Colordao…it’s AgriCultural” prize pack. All winning photos will be on display at the Beede-Hamil Agriculture Building at Northeastern Junior College in Sterling, Colorado and showcased on the State Department of Agriculture’s website.

The deadline for submissions is December 31st, 2015 and winners will be announced in January 2016.

Other winners to be announced:

On Septbember 17th, three winners of a photo contest celebrating women feeding the world through agricultural biodiversity will be announced at the Agricultural biodiversity, value chains and women’s empowerment event in Italy.

Nearly 200 photos were submitted, showing women cooking, farming and caring for their families.
