Delaware Farm Bureau launched a photo contest showcasing agriculture in the state.

First prize in each of two age categories is $150; second prize, $100; and third prize, $75. Entry fee is $5 per photo. The first entry for DFB members or their child or ward is free.

Photographers age 17 or younger by Sept. 30 may enter the Budding Artist category.

Original, unaltered photos should showcase Delaware agriculture, depicting subjects such as fresh food, farm products being grown or harvested, animals on the farm, family farm life, people working on a farm or ranch, technology use, consumer outreach or a rural scene. These categories are more fully described in the official rules at defb.org/photocontest.html.

The website includes links to download photo contest entry forms, official contest rules, judging criteria and score sheet and instructions for entering online. A completed entry form must be attached to each mailed photo or accompany electronic entries.

A model release form must be submitted for each identifiable person in the photograph. Photos become the property of DFB and will not be returned. Winning photos will be featured at DFB’s annual meeting and banquet and at the DFB office for one year.

Entries can be mailed with check or money order to Delaware Farm Bureau Photo Contest, Heather Kline, 3457 S. Dupont Highway, Camden, DE 19934.
