Indiana Agriculture Photo Contest

The Indiana Agriculture Photo Contest has been part of the department since 2008. These photos are a powerful testament of this hardworking community and the invaluable contributions of our Hoosier farmers. Contest winners will have their winning photographs framed and featured in the Offices of the Lt. Governor’s Family of Business in Indianapolis, as well as be special guests at this year’s Celebration of Agriculture at the Indiana State Fair, where they will be recognized and presented a certificate by Lt. Governor Suzanne Crouch.

Contestants can submit up to five photos in digital format. Each photo must be submitted under one of the following categories:

  • On the Farm: Showcasing any building, piece of equipment or activity that is a part of life on an Indiana farm.
  • Faces of Agriculture: Featuring those who grow and produce food, fuel and fiber in Indiana.
  • Agritourism: Spotlighting Indiana’s seasonal and agricultural destinations, such as orchards, wineries and farmers markets.

In total, ten winners will be selected: two from each category and two overall.
