Farm Bureau calendar

Farm Bureau calendar seeks pics of Oregon agriculture

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, planting/harvest, the landscape, anything that depicts the beauty, culture, enjoyment, technology, or tradition of family farming and ranching in all parts of Oregon.

“With farmers markets in full swing, county fairs and on-farm festivals coming up, and lots of activity happening on farms and ranches across the state, summer is an excellent time to capture scenes of Oregon agriculture,” said OFB Communications Director Anne Marie Moss.

Horizontal-format, high-resolution images – both close-ups and panoramic views — are needed of all types of agriculture in all seasons. Subject ideas include farmers markets; county fair scenes; close-ups of fruits, vegetables, flowers, farm animals, crops in the field, etc.; planting and/or harvesting shots; portraits of farmers/ranchers; and farmland in all seasons.

Photographers with images selected for month pages in Oregon’s Bounty will receive a photo credit in the 2016 calendar and 10 copies of the calendar.

The deadline for entries is September 15, 2015.

Photographers can email their digital photo(s) to annemarie@oregonfb.org, or put the image(s) on a CD and send it via postal mail to Anne Marie Moss, Oregon Farm Bureau, 1320 Capitol St. NE, Suite 200, Salem, OR 97301.

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 (OFB) is a grassroots, nonpartisan, nonprofit organization representing the interests of the state’s farmers and ranchers in the public and policymaking arenas. First established in Oregon in 1919, Farm Bureau is organized in all 36 counties and has 7,000 member families that are professionally engaged in agriculture.
