JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri officials are hunting for the best pictures and videos depicting life in rural communities.
The state Agriculture Department's fourth annual Focus on Missouri Agriculture contest runs through July 1. It asks amateurs photographers of all ages to share their favorite moments.
Participants may enter up to three photos in each of five categories: The Beauty of the Farm, Faces of the Farm, The Farming Life, The Pride of the Farm and - for those 12 and younger - The Children's Barnyard.
Entries will be judged on visual impact, creativity, memorable content and image quality. Winners will be announced during the State Fair.
