The Missouri Department of Agriculture has launched its 12th annual Focus on Missouri Agriculture photo contest.
The contest, which runs through June 11, is an opportunity for amateur photographers to share the unique stories and images of agriculture.
The contest is open to amateur photographers of all ages. Participants may enter up to three photos in each of the five categories: Beauty of the Farm, Faces of the Farm, The Farmer’s Life and Pride of the Farm. Children’s Barnyard, a special category for budding photographers ages 12 and under, is also offered.
Winners will be announced in early July and winning images will be displayed during the Missouri State Fair in the Agriculture Building, Aug. 12-22.
Photos can be submitted at agriculture.Mo.Gov/focus. A complete list of rules and guidelines can be found on the same page.
