2017 Oregon’s Bounty Calendar photo submissions due by Sept. 15


OFB invites the public to submit photos for possible inclusion in the 2017 Oregon’s Bounty calendar!
The award-winning calendar celebrates all aspects of Oregon agriculture: the commodities, the people, the production, the landscape, the enjoyment, anything that depicts the beauty, technology, culture, or tradition of farming and ranching. It is sent to over 60,000 Farm Bureau members around Oregon, and thousands more are distributed throughout the year.

> The deadline is Sept. 15, 2016.

> There is no limit to the number of photos that can be submitted. 

Submit photos to: annemarie@oregonfb.org, or upload to our dropbox at www.hightail.com/u/OregonFarmBureau, or mail a disc or printed photos to Anne Marie Moss, OFB, 1320 Capitol St. NE, Suite 200, Salem, OR 97301.

Please read the important information below! 

Requirements & photo specs:

• Photos must involve farming or ranching in Oregon.
• Photos must be taken in a *horizontal format* to fit a calendar layout.
• Small, lower-resolution images can be submitted for judging, however
• Selected images MUST be available in high-resolution, 300 dpi format or higher, otherwise they will be too grainy to enlarge. (But you can email a smaller-res version to start with; our email server has a file size limit of 10mb. Or send files individually.)
• Photos must be submitted in .jpg format.
• Photos with people may require a signed photo release. Please don’t send photos of people you don’t know.
• There is no limit to the number of photos that can be submitted.
• You don’t have to be a Farm Bureau member to participate.

Photo tips:

• We need both close-ups photos and panoramic shots for the calendar.

• Selected photos are ones that don’t lose their impact after staying on a wall for a month. I tend to describe a good calendar photo as being “gaze worthy,” or one that doesn’t get old after looking at it for just a second.

• We’re looking for images of all types of agriculture from around the state in all seasons.

• Subject ideas: harvesting of crops, planting of crops, close-ups of ag products or crops, panoramic scenes of farmland, farm families at work or with animals, portraits of farmers/ranchers, farmers markets, county fairs, people enjoying agriculture, harvest festivals, livestock, farming scenes from all seasons.
