Get your cameras ready!
Attention Agents, Farmers, Ranchers, NAU Country employees, and friends, we are gathering photos from the farm in preparation for our 2023 NAU Country Photo Calendar! This year's theme is Sunrises and Sunsets!
Please review the contest details, disclaimers, and photo submission requirements below and send email@example.com up to five (5) of your Sunrise and/or Sunset farm photos with a signed *Release Form by 12:00 p.m. (CDT) Thursday, September 1, 2022!
After the submission window closes, we will post the photos that have met the printing and contest requirements to our Facebook page in a photo gallery and allow voting for the most liked photo. The most liked photo will be used on the cover of the 2023 NAU Country Photo Calendar.
Voting begins Friday, September 2, 2022, and ends at 12:00 p.m. (CDT) Friday, September 9, 2022, on the NAU Country Facebook page.
Photos that qualify will be entered into the contest, but not all photos will be chosen to be printed within the calendar. The cover winner will be notified via email right away. Other chosen photographs will be placed within the calendar and given printed recognition including the photographer's name, county, and state. These participants will be notified via email within two weeks following the contest. Participants whose photos are selected to be used within the calendar will receive a free calendar. Shipping dates are TBD.
We will not accept or enter photos with minor children’s faces due to privacy concerns. All farm photos must be taken within the United States.
