Photographer taking a photo

If you’re an amateur photographer who enjoys capturing images of the Bay State’s farms and farm products, grab your camera and get outside to take pictures of farm happenings for our annual Massachusetts Agriculture Calendar Photo Contest. Winning entries will be published in the 2011 Massachusetts Agriculture Calendar. The contest and calendar are sponsored by DAR, Massachusetts Agriculture in the Classroom Inc. and the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service.

We are seeking photos that represent the traditional, including maple sugaring, cranberries, dairy cows, flowers and plants, fall fruits, farmers, and farm families, and the new and dynamic, such as on-farm renewable energy systems and urban agriculture.

2010 Calendar winners.

Winning photographers will be credited in the calendar and will be invited to a ceremony at the Eastern States Exposition (The Big E agricultural fair) in West Springfield this September (tickets to the fair included). Winning photos will be featured on DAR’s home page during the corresponding month.

2011 Calendar photo contest entry form.

Entry deadline is June 1, 2010.
