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 (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. Because Farm Aid was held in your area last year, I think that your readers will be interested interested in this fundraiser
My friend Gwen has a farm out in western MA. I haven't been out there, but I've heard it's nice. That and when I drove out to the Berkshires, I saw plenty of farm land out there. Grab your digital SLR's and start crackin!
The contest will run through Sept. 20, 2009 and winners will be selected on Sept. 22, 2009.
