The Kansas Department of Agriculture’s annual photo contest will continue accepting entries until Aug. 31.

This year’s KDA Photo Contest categories were selected to promote different aspects of Kansas agriculture: Farm Fresh, Technology in Agriculture, Kansas Critters, and Kansas Life. And for the third year, a video category will welcome drone footage, harvest videos, or other short clips of under 30 seconds that showcase Kansas agriculture. As always, there is a separate youth division, for young photographers under age 19. Prizes will be awarded to the top two winners in each of the six categories.

Photo entries should be sent in .jpg format to [email protected]. Videos should be sent in .mp4 or .mov format. Entries must include a title and brief description, where and when the photo/video was taken, the photographer’s full name and age, entry category hometown and email address.

Guidelines for the KDA Photo Contest, including deadlines, categories and prizes, can be found at agriculture.ks.gov/PhotoContest. Voting to select finalists will begin on KDA’s social media sites in late August. For more information, contact Heather Lansdowne, KDA director of communications, at [email protected] or 785-564-6706.
