Entries due by Sept. 8

Missouri Livestock Symposium organizers are holding a Missouri farm life photo contest.

University of Missouri Extension livestock specialist Zac Erwin says amateur photographers may submit photos through Sept. 8 for the contest. Email photos in JPG format to info@missourilivestock.com. Include your name, address, telephone number, age, title of the photo and a brief description of the photo.

All photos must be 8.5 by 11 inches and in portrait orientation. See missourilivestock.com for details.

Symposium committee members will select the top 10 photos to be posted and voted upon on the symposium’s Facebook page during the week of Sept. 17. Committee members will choose the winning photo from the top five and the winner will be recognized at the symposium Dec. 1.
