KDA Photo Contest Voting Opens
Kansas Ag Connection - 08/17/2015
An elevator at sunset, a grandson helping his grandfather feed cattle or a young 4-H member taking a nap with their county fair steer; which is your favorite? Voting for the Kansas Department of Agriculture's photo contest opened online Saturday. Voting will close Sept. 15.
Votes collected on the department's Facebook and Pinterest pages will determine the finalists for the contest. The top five pictures from each category will advance to the final round and will be reviewed by the Kansas State Board of Agriculture members and select Kansas legislators.
Points will be awarded to the photos as follows: Likes, 1 point; Comments, 5 points; Reposts/Re-pins -- 10 points.
The first place photographer in each category will receive a $100 gift card and the second place photographer will receive a $50 gift card. Select finalists will also have photos on display at KDA.
KDA seeks to advocate for and promote the agriculture industry, the state's largest industry, employer and economic contributor. The KDA photo contest encourages photographers to tell agriculture's story through pictures.
Vote for your favorite Farm Face, Picture Perfect Prairie, Agriculture at Work, Farm Animal and Youth Division entry. The department's Facebook page can be found at www.facebook.com/KansasDeptofAg and on Pinterest at www.pinterest.com/kansasdeptofag. For more information about the photo contest,
