The 2019 photo contest of National Corn Growers Association, Fields-of-Corn.com continues collecting entries through the harvest season.
First ($300), Second ($200), and Third ($100) place prizes will be awarded for each of seven categories. Judges will select a single Grand Prize winner to be awarded $500 and the single, most popular photo with Facebook “likes” will also be awarded a $500 prize.
