Entries open for AgDay #AgVenture Photo Competition

Photographers of all levels of expertise are encouraged to capture Australians at work in agriculture to celebrate the theme of this year’s National Agriculture Day, Friday 19 November 2021.

The AgDay #AgVenture Photo Competition is a joint initiative of the National Farmers’ Federation and Syngenta Australia and entries are now open.

“As they say, a picture tells a thousand words and we’re excited to see in photo form, examples of Australians enjoying careers in agriculture,” NFF President Fiona Simson said.

“So much of agriculture lends itself to great pics: whether it’s the rough and tumble of the cattle yards, a harvest team about to do its thing in a bumper wheat crop, or the exacting work of a plant breeding laboratory.”

Syngenta ANZ Managing Director Paul Luxton said he was looking forward to seeing the images entered.

“Submissions in the AgDay #AgVenture Photo Competition will bring to life the many and varied fabulous career opportunities in agriculture. Entries will have the enduring impact of inspiring Australian agriculture’s next generation.”

There are great cash prizes on offer:

  • First place: $2,000 pre-paid Mastercard
  • Second place: $1,000 pre-paid Mastercard
  • Four runners up: $500 pre-paid Mastercard
