Oregon Farm Bureau Seeks Photos for 2016 Calendar

Oregon Farm Bureau invites the public to submit photos for its 2016 Oregon’s Bounty calendar.
The award-winning calendar celebrates all aspects of Oregon agriculture: the products, the people, the production, the landscape, the enjoyment, anything that depicts the beauty, technology, culture,
enjoyment, or tradition of family farming and ranching.
 
“Spring is a great time to start looking at Oregon agriculture for photo opportunities,” said OFB Communications Director Anne Marie Moss. “Tree orchards and flower fields will bloom early this year, farmers markets are starting, and there’s a lot of planting going on.”
 
Horizontal-format, high-resolution images – both close-ups and panoramic views — are needed of all types of agriculture in all seasons. Subject ideas include the farmers markets, close-ups of ag products or crops in the field, planting and harvesting of crops, panoramic scenes of farmland, people enjoying agriculture or ag products, farm animals, portraits of farmers/ranchers, county fairs, on-farm festivals, and farming scenes from all seasons.
 
Photographers with images selected for month pages in Oregon’s Bounty will receive a photo credit in the 2016 calendar, copies of the calendar, and a year of Farm Bureau membership.
 
The deadline for entries is September 15, 2015.
 
Photo specifications and contest rules are attached, and are also available at
oregonfb.org/calendar.
 
Photographers do not need to be Farm Bureau members to participate and there is no limit to the number of photos that can be submitted.
 
The state’s largest general farm organization, Oregon Farm Bureau is a grassroots, nonpartisan, nonprofit organization representing the interests of the state’s family farmers and ranchers in the public and policymaking arenas. The calendar is sent to 60,000 Farm Bureau members around the state and hundreds more are distributed throughout the year.
