Oregon ag photos sought for calendar

The Oregon Farm Bureau is asking for photos of agriculture, orchards, ranches, fields and people for its 2012 calendar, Oregon's Bounty.

Photographers can submit photos of Oregon agriculture: the commodities, the families, the production, the landscape, the retail -- anything that depicts the beauty, technology, culture, or tradition of farming and ranching. Both close-ups and panoramic views are needed.

Photographers with images selected for month pages will receive a photo credit, an item of Farm Bureau gear, and Farm Bureau membership if they have not already joined the organization. The deadline for entries is Aug. 15.

For photo specifications and other contest rules, go to oregonfb.org..
