Calling all shutterbugs! After a year’s absence, it’s time once again for the annual Utah Farm Bureau photography contest, when you or someone you know can share your best pictures with the entire Beehive state, and possibly win a cash prize. 

So charge your camera & phones and get your artistic eye ready for a great season of photography! As always, rural settings and rural lifestyles are welcomed themes for all submissions, but we welcome photos that showcase growing & enjoying food, and the connections we have all with food. 

As in years past, we’ll have three categories. Utah Farm Bureau’s panel of judges will select the winners of two categories, “Kids in the Country” and “The Miracle of Agriculture”. “Kids in the Country” is for photos involving youth, children, or families. “The Miracle of Agriculture” is a broad category that will include photos showcasing the work of producing and growing food and fiber in Utah, as well as eating and celebrating life through food. In short, show us how you’re connected to food!

The third category is simply called “BeUTAHful.” This is a “People’s Choice” may vote for the best image of Utah that showcases agriculture, rural life, and beautiful landscapes. The winner of this category will be decided by a fan vote on social media of five finalists. The finalists will be chosen by the Utah Farm Bureau’s panel of judges. 

The finalists will be announced on social media in October, and fan voting will take place beginning November 1, 2022. More details on voting will be announced in the Fall Utah Farm & Fork magazine. Winners will be announced in the December 2022 Utah Farm & Fork magazine, with each category winner receiving $100.
