GFB photo contest showcases snapshots of Georgia agriculture

Cute farm kids, funny farm animals, majestic sunrises and sunsets – these are just some of the 254 terrific shots Georgia Farm Bureau members entered in our 9th Annual Picture Agriculture in Georgia Contest.

Congratulations to Haley Anderson of Screven County for winning the contest and grand prize of $150. Her photo, shown here, will be featured on the cover of the 2019 GFB Young Farmer & Rancher Calendar, which will be made available at most county offices.

The calendar also features the photos of the 11 honorable mention winners, who each received a $75 prize. A panel of judges selected 12 photos from all entries, and GFB members attending the organization’s Young Farmer & Rancher Conference cast their votes for their favorite photo to select the contest winner.

The honorable mention winners were: Ariel Holland, Johnson County; Caleb Brandt, Bacon County; Cheryl Harrell, Early County, Debbie Henry, Miller County; Hudson Folsom, Cook County, Jonathan Smith, Telfair County; Justine Palmer, Hall County; Laura Griffeth, Webster County; Justin & Lauren Smith, Walker County; Monique Daniels, Sumter County; and Susie Short, Lee County. To view the top 12 photos visit

Thanks to all the GFB members who entered this year’s contest. GFB plans to hold the contest again next year. Contest details will be available next spring on GFB’s website and at county Farm Bureau offices. If you are interested in entering the 2019 contest, contact your county Farm Bureau and ask the staff to notify you when it receives details.
