As a way to raise money and build its fan base in advance of the 2009 concert, Farm Aid recently launched an online photo contest at www.farmfreshpics.org. Farm Aid president Willie Nelson, Elaine Irwin Mellencamp, singer/songwriter Jason Mraz, rock photographer Paul Natkin and Farm Aid executive director Carolyn Mugar will serve on a panel of judges who will select one of the contest winners.
We're looking for photos of farms, farmers and farm families, farming equipment and barns, farmer's markets and farm animals anything and everything that shows the vibrancy and beauty of the American family farm.
Your readers can win a trip and two front row tickets to Farm Aid 2009 Presented by Horizon Organic by entering a photo into the Farm Fresh Pics contest and getting their friends to vote. Brag about your giant tomatoes or plump peaches and even back it up with a picture!
The contest will run through Sept. 20, 2009 and winners will be selected on Sept. 22, 2009.
