Attention farmers: You could win cash

A photo taken by local farmer Carrie Paquin

Everyone knows that farming is a grueling lifestyle, filled with long hours, back breaking work, and financial risk. In celebration of Agriculture Day, the Guelph based organization Farm & Food Care is launching a Canada-wide photo contest for the next edition of The Real Dirt on Farming, a publication that answers common questions about food and farming practices in Canada.  

Not only may winning photos be used in the next edition of The Real Dirt on Farming, but there is also cash up for grabs, with $4,000 in cash prizes available for winners in six categories: Canadian Farm Scenes; Faces Behind Food & Farming; All about Animals; Farm Innovation; Crazy about Crops; and Farm to Plate.

To answer the obvious question – yes, this contest is open to farmers from our area as well. Why not submit a photo? With entries accepted until July 1, there is plenty of time to wait until the “perfect shot” reveals itself!

Full contest guidelines are available on the FFCO website at:
