Farm Aid is running Farm Fresh Pics -- an online photo contest -- that could put you front row and center to performances by Willie Nelson, Jason Mraz, Neil Young, John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews, Wilco, Jamey Johnson, and Phosporescent, at Farm Aid 2009 Presented by Horizon Organic. They're looking for photos that show the beauty of the American farm and family, click through for details.
Like everything we do, it's about supporting and celebrating family farmers. Your entry can be a photo of anything related to family farmers and the good food they produce. We're looking for photos of farms, farmers and farm families, tractors and barns, the perfect tomatoes you bought at a farmers market, or your favorite farm animals - anything and everything that shows the vibrancy and beauty of the American family farm.
Farm Aid takes the stage in St. Louis, Missouri, October 4, to raise money for their cause - to prevent the loss of American farms and to keep farm families on their land. Since 1985, Farm Aid has raised $35 million and provides farmers with a resource network of family farm organizations across the country. In celebration of the family farm enter your photos -- to be judged by Singer/Songwriter Jason Mraz, Photographer Paul Natkin, Farm Aid President Willie Nelson and Executive Director Cayolyn Mugar -- and get friends and family to vote for your entry.
