Anyone with photos showing how they use forages can enter the 2013 Georgia Forages Photo Contest. But the Oct. 1 deadline nears.

The purpose of the contest, sponsored by University of Georgia Extension, is to recognize the multi-faceted uses of forages in Georgia. It is open to anyone.

Winning photos will be announced and showcased at the Sunbelt Ag Expo in Moultrie, Oct. 15-17, then posted to this Flickr website, which currently holds 2012 winning photos. Categories include harvested forages, grazing, education, wildlife and conservation and troubleshooting (nutrient deficiencies, diseases, etc.). An open category is also available.

Submit photos to Dennis Hancock via email at Get an entry form and details.
