Tailgate Talk: Planting Memories

March 12, 2011

We are searching the countryside for scenic photos like the one above and others that speak to agriculture’s diversity.   
 
 

Springtime on the farm is a season of anticipation and excitement. Seeds are being planted, baby animals make their arrival and the days start getting longer. Spring is a great time to capture
moments on the farm that will be memories forever.

That’s why we’re launching the Farm Journal photo contest, "Planting Memories." Capture your favorite farm scenes this spring and share them with us.

Here are the entry guidelines:

  • Submit photos through Facebook at www.facebook.com/farmjournal or www.facebook.com/agweb, or via an e-mail to tailgatetalk@farmjournal.com.
  • Photos can be of anything that reminds you of life on the farm: pretty skylines, baby animals, planting, growing crops, weather, etc.
  • Select photos will be featured on our website and Facebook pages. The winning photo, as determined by the editorial staff, will be featured in Farm Journal, and the winner will receive an AgWeb.com jacket.


Farm Journal Media reserves the right to use all submitted photos at our discretion, giving credit to the photographer.
