INDIANPOLIS, Ind. (May 17, 2019) — The opportunity to win cash with your camera in the Indiana Corn and Soybean Review Cover Photo Contest has been extended to August 15, 2019. Poor weather conditions this spring allowed few days for farmers to work in their fields, and fewer chances for top-quality photos. Enter the contest, and you could win $1,000 from the Indiana Soybean Alliance (ISA) and the Indiana Corn Growers Association (ICGA). The contest is sponsored by Farm Credit Mid-America.

 

Indiana Corn and Soybean Review will feature the winning photo on the cover of its fall edition. All submitted photos must be digital images in a high resolution .jpg format – a minimum of 300 dpi at a size of 7 inches in length or width with RGB color.

 

For this contest, the Indiana Corn and Soybean Review is focused on finding truly stunning, cover-worthy photos. Farm Credit Mid-America sweetened the pot by offering a $1,000 first prize and $500 second prize.

 

Contestants should submit photos by email to photocontest@indianasoybean.com before the August 15 deadline. Send one photo per email. Each photo must have its own entry form, which can be downloaded at https://www.indianasoybean.com/2019-photo-contest

 

Farm Credit Mid-America actively partners with the Indiana Soybean Alliance, the Indiana Corn Marketing Council and the Indiana Corn Growers Association on their many projects and events. The agricultural lending cooperative serves nearly 100,000 customers throughout Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee.

 

A panel of ISA staff, ISA and ICGA board members and Farm Credit Mid-America representatives will judge the photographs. The photos will be evaluated on visual appeal, representation of Indiana production agriculture and originality. Judges want to see magazine-cover quality photos, and photos featuring people or livestock in connection with ag are encouraged, but not required. The winner will be announced in the summer issue of Indiana Corn and Soybean Review.

 

 

The Indiana Corn Growers Association, which works with the state and federal governments to develop and promote sound policies that benefit Indiana corn farmers, consists of nine farmer-directors who provide leadership to the organization on behalf of the nearly 600 ICGA members statewide.

The Indiana Soybean Alliance works to enhance the viability of Indiana soybean farmers through the effective and efficient investment of soybean checkoff funds and the development of sound policies that protect and promote the interest of Indiana soybean farmers. The ISA is working to build new markets for soybeans through the promotion of grain marketing, livestock, aquaculture, production research, biofuels, environmental programs, and new uses for soybeans. ISA is led by an elected farmer board that directs investments of the soybean checkoff funds on behalf of more than 28,000 Indiana soybean farmers and promotes policies on behalf of the nearly 600 dues paying members.
