Hopefully most of the planters are being hosed off and readied for storage, and we've just wrapped up our MyPlanting21 photo contest. The tallies are in for the most popular photos, and we've counted up the votes for our Editor's Choice awards.
Congratulations to all the winners, it was yet again a delight watching those images as they rolled in. There were some extremely unique and well-thought-out images, all showing the beauty and reality of the crop season on the farm. Winners in the overall contest, chosen by popular vote, were: first place, Wendy Pope; second place, Aimee Bissell. Winners in the Editor's Choice category were: first place, Morgan Hansen (that image accompanies this article); second place, Holly Poduska.
First place prize in each category receives a $150 gift card and a professional canvas print of the winner's image; second place earns a $75 gift card and a canvas print. Winners will also be featured in the August 2021 issue of Progressive Farmer magazine. You can also see them here, along with all of the entries for 2021: https://spotlights.dtnpf.com/…
Again, our huge thanks and congratulations to everyone who entered. Stay tuned for upcoming photo contests; we are continually impressed with how popular these projects have become.
