Capture Colorado agriculture in a photo

Summer and fall are the ideal seasons to photograph the lush beauty of Colorado agriculture.

Photographers of all ages are encouraged to capture the essence of Colorado agriculture on film and enter the 2008 “Colorado … it’s AgriCulture” photography contest.

Entries must be submitted to the Colorado Department of Agriculture with an official entry form by Dec. 31, 2008.

Judging will be based on theme, creativity and technical quality, and prizes will be awarded in four categories: livestock, people, crops and agritourism.

The photographer whose picture best depicts the “spirit” of Colorado agriculture will receive a Kodak digital camera.

All winning photographs will be displayed in the Beede-Hamil Agriculture Building at Northeastern Junior College in Sterling, Colo.

The contest is sponsored by the Colorado Department of Agriculture, the AgInsights Committee, Kodak Colorado Division and Northeastern Junior College.

Visit or pick up an official entry form at the Archuleta County Extension Office.
