GFB Photo Contest puts farm life in focus

Posted on August 19, 2019 12:00 AM

Farms provide endless opportunities for great photos as the 81 contestants who submitted 199 photos in our 10th Annual Picture Agriculture in Georgia Contest proved. Congratulations to Nicole Duvall of Greene County for winning the contest and $150 grand prize! Her  photo “Farmer’s Daughter,” will be featured on the cover of the 2020 GFB Young Farmers & Ranchers calendar available at most county Farm Bureau offices this fall.

The calendar also features the 11 honorable mention winners, who each received a $75 prize. A panel of judges selected 12 photos from all entries. GFB members attending the organization’s YF&R Leadership Conference in July voted for their favorite photo to select the winner.

Thanks to all GFB members who entered the contest. The YF&R Committee plans to hold the contest again next year. Look for contest details next spring on GFB social media and at county offices. If you’re interested in entering the 2020 contest, ask your county office to notify you when it receives contest details.
