Only original photos or high-quality reprints will be accepted via mailed entries. Color or black-and-white photos are acceptable in any size. To submit a mailed entry, attach a print entry form (page 47 of the Spring 2012 issue) to the back of the photo (copies may be made of entry form if more than one is needed). No CD-ROMs (or other digital media storage) will be accepted via the mailed entry option.
To submit a digital photo, click on the Submit Your Photo tab. Digital files must be high quality – minimum of 5x7 size at 300 dpi resolution. To avoid legal entanglements, make certain permission has been given for use of photos.
We offer three categories: (1) Tennessee, (2) Home and (3) Farm. Only one entry per person per category. Only Tennessee Farm Bureau members and their immediate family (parents, children, siblings) are eligible to enter. Employees of Tennessee Farm Bureau, Tennessee Farmers Insurance Cos., county Farm Bureaus or their families are not eligible to win. This is an amateur photo contest. Professional photographers are not eligible.
Entries must be submitted by August 1, 2012. Photos will not be returned and may be used in TFBF publications with photo credit given. For additional information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Winners will be announced in the winter issue of Tennessee Home & Farm. First-place winners in each of three categories will be awarded $100 cash prizes; the grand-prize winner receives $200.
Voting for a Readers' Choice online gallery commences August 2, 2012, and lasts through August 31, 2012.
