Chatham 250 Agricultural Photo Contest


Grab your cameras and set your sights on farm life for a photo contest in honor of Chatham’s 250th anniversary. Capture the beauty of our local farms and then upload one image along with a description of 200 words or less. All submissions are due Aug. 1, and winners will be announced in September.

Type of Photos:

We are seeking photos that highlight agriculture in Chatham County, including agricultural landscapes, crops, livestock, farm activities like planting and harvesting, farm equipment, farm workers, and farmers’ markets. Agricultural enterprises could include produce, flowers, livestock, field crops, beekeeping, forestry, and anything else related to agriculture. Photos may be color or black and white, but images should not be edited with art filters. All photo contestants are required to sign the photo release waiver provided in the registration form.

Each photo should include a short written reflection (maximum 200 words) explaining the significance of the photo to the photographer. Entries are not complete without both the photo and the written reflection.

All photos should be taken in Chatham County. Only one photo entry per photographer is allowed, so choose your best shot!

Photo resolution should be a minimum of 150 dpi to ensure suitable print quality.

Age Categories:

There are four different age categories for photo submissions. A winner will be selected from each category:

  • 10 years and under
  • 11-17 years
  • 18-64 years
  • 65 years and over

Selection of Winners:

A panel of judges will select the winner from each age category. Winners will receive a canvas print of their photo, and winning photos will be published in Chatham Magazine and displayed at the Chatham County Agricultural Fair in September.

How to Enter:

Entries will be submitted online through the Chatham 250 Website. Click here to submit your entry. The deadline for submissions is August 1st, 2021. Winners will be selected in early September.
