Grab your camera once again and capture the beauty of cotton!
For a second year, Farm Press wants to recognize the beauty of cotton and the people who grow it. Send us your best cotton photo (one entry/person please): kids in cotton fields, blooms, sunsets, pickers and strippers… anything that captures the uniqueness of cotton to firstname.lastname@example.org by Nov. 1, 2012. Be sure to include a description of your photo, along with your name and mailing address. See Photo Sumbission rules here.
Cotton is a huge part of Southern farm culture... snow-white fields ready for harvest hold promise of a good return for hard work and perseverance. And from the time the first seedling pushes through the soil, to first bloom, to boll fill and finally to the massive pickers marching through fields leaving brown swaths in the white landscape, a cotton crop is a work of art.
Farm Press readers will pick their favorites between Nov. 5 – 9, 2012 (one vote per day please), and we’ll award the contributor of the best photo a $100 Visa gift card. Second place earns a $50 Visa gift card. Winners will be announced Nov. 12.
