7th Annual Agribusiness Ag Photo Contest


Amateurs, professionals, youth and adults may submit photos to the Agribusiness Division. While there are no subject categories, all submissions must be agriculture related and taken in Wyoming. Photos could include crops; livestock and farm animals; ag recreation and activities; or scenic agriculture. Photos may be in color or black and white. Contestants may submit a MAXIMUM of 25 photos. Any photos entered above the maximum will NOT be judged.


All contestants are eligible for the Grand Prize of $300. Adult contestants may win $150 in five different categories: Livestock, Crops, People/Recreation, Scenic, and Best Edit. Youth contestants may win $100 and $50 for 1st and 2nd places respectively. Winning photos will also be used in the 2015 AgriCulture Calendar.

Agribusiness 5th Annual Ag Photo Contest Winners Announced:


We received 455 great photographs and decided to bring in additional judges to help with the judging process. This year we applied scoring on four criteria: WOW factor, composition, viewpoint and originality/artistic merit. The helped immensely with the process and gave us clear winners.

We had a number of new contestants in addition to many returning contestants bringing us to 51 contestants, including one youth contestant.

This year we also implemented online submittal of entries which made it easier for contestants to submit their photos. In fact, the majority of the photos submitted were done online.

Many of the photographs will be featured in the 2013 AgriCulture calendar, which will be out soon.
