Farm Photo Contest Finalists: Vote For a Winner Now!

Boston, MA—Today, The Green Life announced the finalists for the First Annual Farm Photo Contest. In June, to support organic and local agriculture, The Green Life asked farmers to submit their best farm photos. Over the course of the submission period, The Green Life received over submissions from dozens of farms in four different categories: Farm Life, Livestock, Landscape and Produce/Products.

The Green Life staff deliberated over which photos to select as finalists. “It was a tough decision” said intern Hope Schaitkin, “but we finally picked a few that seemed the most artistic, creative, original and green!”

These final 13 photos have been uploaded to The Green Life’s Facebook page, where anyone can vote for a winner. The photo with the most “likes” will win!

“We want as many people to get involved as possible — that includes family, customers, other farmers — so we’re encouraging folks to share their favorite pictures on Facebook or over email!” said Jeff Gang, coordinator of The Green Life.

The contest is open to voting until 1PM ET on August 6th, 2012. “We’re looking forward to some intense voting” said Jeff, “because we have a lot of submissions from some great farms.”

These photo finalists are competing for more than just bragging rights. The Green Life is offering prizes from green-minded businesses Brookline Booksmith, Back to the Roots, or Savorii.

“This is the part of the competition that’s really dependent on getting the word out there” said Schaitkin. “At this point, it’s anybody’s game.”
