BUDDING photographers are encouraged to start snapping around farms in the Echuca-Moama region and enter their best photographs in a competition.

The person who takes the top photo will win four Medallion Club tickets at Etihad Stadium during the 2018 AFL season.

Your photos can be anything agriculture related – whether it’s crops, animals, people on farms, farm related activities, wildlife on farms or other on-farm environmentally friendly habitats.

The competition is being organised by Speak Up, and photographs submitted will be used for a range of projects including a calendar, Facebook posts and promotional videos.

Spokesperson Linda Fawns said a key aim of the competition was to highlight the environmental significance of the region’s farmlands, as well as the importance of agriculture to our communities and way of life.

“There is insufficient understanding in some quarters of the contribution our farmlands make to environmental wellbeing, as well as the social importance of agriculture to rural communities and, as such, the nation as a whole,’’ Mrs Fawns said.

Mrs Fawns thanked Deniliquin Freighters for providing the excellent prize of four Medallion Club tickets.

Photos should be emailed to [email protected] by October 1, 2017.
