Now that harvest is over and the holidays are well under way, Farm Industry News announces a new photo contest. Do you have your decorations up around the farm for the holidays yet? We want to see them!
From now until Monday, Dec. 12, 2011, at noon, we will accept photos of your holiday decorations on your farm. Whether the photos are of your home, your farm equipment or outdoor decorations, we want to see how you celebrate the holidays on the farm.
We will award a book to the first- and second-place winners in the contest just in time for the holidays: The Ultimate Guide to Tractors by Jim Glastonbury for first place and The Farm Tractor by Ralph W. Sanders for second place.
Photos can be submitted in one of two ways. Email the photo as an attachment to: [email protected]  with the subject line: “2011 holiday photo contest,” or post the photo to the Farm Industry News Facebook wall (see instructions below). The entry limit is three photos per individual.
Instructions for posting a photo to the Farm Industry News Facebook wall:
Step 1: Log in to your Facebook account.
Step 2: Search for Farm Industry News  and click the “Like” button once you are on the Farm Industry News Facebook page.
Step 3: At the top of the Farm Industry News Facebook wall, click on share photo. Select the photo from your computer, and in the “Say something about this photo…” field, type: “2011 Farm Industry News holiday photo contest entry.”
Farm Industry News editors will select the group of finalists from the total entries and publish the finalists as a Facebook photo album on Dec. 12, 2011. Facebook fans will have until Friday, Dec. 16, 2011, to vote for their favorite photo by “liking” it. The two photos with the most “likes” will receive the aforementioned prizes. NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. A purchase does not improve your chances of winning. Contest open to legal residents of 50 United States and the District of Columbia, who are 18 or older.
