Back by popular demand, the National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) Fields-of-Corn.com photo contest is officially open! This is the eighth year of the contest and two new categories have been added.
“This year I am excited to offer photographers the opportunity to submit photos in some of our most popular categories like the farm family lifestyle and growing field corn, but also new categories of equipment and bird’s eye view,” said NCGA Graphic Communications Manager Beth Musgrove. “Every year it’s great to see how the submissions tell the story of agriculture and rural America. That’s why we evaluate the categories and try to offer photographers something new to snap a picture of.”
A total of 26 cash prizes will be awarded with the single, most popular photo with Facebook “likes” receiving a $500 prize and First ($300), Second ($200), Third ($100), prizes will be awarded for each of eight categories and, as in prior years, judges will select a single Grand Prize winner to be awarded $500.
You can visit Fields-of-Corn today to enter your best farm photos, and vote for your favorite photos. The minimum width in pixels required is 3000 for photo submissions.

NCGA is taking a series of actions to do our part to help contain the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and the economic fallout it is creating for corn farmers and our customers. Short term, this means instituting policies to protect the health and safety of our stakeholders and the broader communities we serve. Long term, we’re focused on creating solutions to help corn farmers and our customers recover from the financial impacts of this crisis.
