National Corn Growers Association is doing their Fields-to-Corn photo contest again this year. This is the second year they have been doing this contest and they hope to collect high-resolution photos of growing corn from seed to harvest, the women and men who grow it and their families. Interested participants will be able to submit multiple entries until November 30, 2015.
Open to all, the Fields-of-Corn photo contest offers a free opportunity for photographers to share their work while competing for a $500 grand prize. Below is the photo that won the grand prize last year. Entries will also be considered for prizes with cash awards for the top three entries in five categories including: Farm Family Lifestyle, Farming Challenges, Growing Field Corn, Scenery/Landscape, and Still Life from the Farm.

It is important to note that the Fields-of-Corn Photo Contest is specifically geared toward photos of field corn and not sweet corn.
Photos will be ranked by members of the public, who will be asked to select their favorites using online Facebook "Likes." The Top 10 photos in each category will then be judged by an impartial panel of professionals in the fields of journalism, marketing, advertising and agriculture with no discrimination towards sex, race, gender or age. The panel's decisions are final.
