2021 NAU Country Photo Calendar Contest


Hey there photographers! It’s time to send us your farm photos through Thursday, September 10, 2020, at 12:00 p.m. (CDT)!

We are gathering photos from the farm in preparation for our 2021 NAU Country Photo Calendar. The theme for this edition is Fun on the Farm! That means any farm-related photos, we want to see - the funnier the better!

Farming is serious business, and one that we don't take lightly. We all know that there are situations and moments that make you smile, or sigh! We want you to share them with us! Have some horses acting goofy? Animals making mischief? Even a wonderful sunset photo over your farming operation? 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 moments on the farm! The 2020 NAU Country Photo Calendar theme was 2020: Focused on Farming, and 2019 highlighted Farm Life. These photos were fantastic!
