2014 Georgia Forages Photo Contest

Georgia Forages Photo Contest

Held in conjunction with the SunBelt Ag Expo, Moultrie, GA

October 14-16, 2014| Moultrie, GA

The purpose of the contest is to recognize, through photography, the multi-faceted uses of forages in Georgia. This contest is open to anyone who would like to share their photos with the Georgia Forages community. There is no entry fee for participating in this contest. Entrants can submit color digital photo files to Dr. Dennis Hancock, UGA Forage Extension Specialist by merely emailing the entry to Dr. Hancock. The entry form used last year is NOT needed. However, Dr. Hancock will follow up with you after receiving the photo to confirm entry and obtain any further information.

Entries will be placed into one of six categories. The photo categories include:

  • Harvested Forages
  • Grazing
  • Education
  • Wildlife and Conservation
  • Troubleshooting (e.g., nutrient deficiencies, diseases, etc.)
  • Open

Entries must be received by October 1st. Winners will be selected by the UGA Forage Extension Agent Team and will be announced on October 14th, at the beginning of the Sunbelt Ag Expo. Certificates will be awarded for the best photos. The top 3 photos in each category will be enlarged and displayed at the Sunbelt Ag Expo at the “Ask the Expert” booth in the Livestock Pavilion. Photo entries will also be posted to a website for public viewing. Entrants do not have to attend the Expo to participate in the Photo Contest.

Credit will be given to the photographer and the photographer will retain all rights to their entry (i.e., for sale, duplication, or use other than publicly displaying the entry for the purposes of the contest). If you have any questions or concerns, please email Dr. Hancock for more information.
