Calling all photographers! The Community Alliance with Family Farmers (CAFF) is searching for photographs to highlight family farming and local food.
CAFF, a nonprofit organization based in Davis, advocates for California’s family farmers and sustainable agriculture. Proceeds and donations from the contest will support the projects and efforts of CAFF.
Participants may enter photos in one of five categories: “Animals,” “Farm/Farmscape,” “Farmers Market/ Farm Stands,” “People,” and “Produce.”
A 12-month calendar will be made to display the contest winners’ work. A total of 27 winning photos will be selected and featured in the calendar.
In addition to being featured in the calendar, participants are also eligible for prizes: $150 grand prize, $75 people’s choice prize, CAFF memberships, Buy Fresh Buy Local tote bags, and more. A list of prizes can be found at http://www.caff.org/about/contest.
The judges are a panel of professional photographers including Lisa Hamilton, Rachel Schreiber, and Willa Mamet. The People’s Choice portion of the contest will be held on CAFF’s Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/famfarms.
