2020 NAU Country Photo Calendar Contest

DustoffyourCamera_FBDust off the camera, it’s time to send us your farm photos through Friday, September 6, 2019, at 12:00 p.m. (CDT)!

We are gathering photos from the farm in preparation for our 2020 NAU Country Photo Calendar. The theme for our next photo calendar is 2020: Focused on Farming. That means any photos farm-related, we want to see!

What does your farming operation focus on? Did you see a beautiful sunrise while planting one morning? Ever look out over your ranch or fields and say, "Wow!"? See something up close that a bystander normally wouldn’t notice? Take a picture of it and send it our way! No matter the time of day, the type of crop, or your skill level, we’d love to see those photos!

Get your photos published!

Previous photo submissions prove that you have amazing talent in capturing special and interesting moments on the farm! The 2019 NAU Country Photo Calendar highlighted Farm Life. In 2018, we looked at The Four Seasons of Farming, and in 2017, we gathered photos of Sunrises and Sunsets. Thank you for your past participation, and we look forward to additional photos this year!
