NEW Photo Contest Celebrates “Santa’s Little Ranch Helpers”


Enter to win prizes from Farm Boy for best ranch kids photos.

I know it’s not December yet, but I’m already in the holiday spirit. I went Black Friday shopping last week and have already wrapped most of the presents to place under the  Christmas tree, which we set up early to shoot a holiday beef commercial. To top it off, I have been perusing the Winter Wonderland Photo Gallery and listening to holiday tunes, as well. Now, before you say, “Bah! Humbug!” I have an exciting new holiday photography contest to announce!

Starting today, I’m accepting photographs for a photo contest with the theme, “Santa’s Little Ranch Helpers.” The idea is to send in your best images of the little ones who follow in your big footsteps on your ranch. It doesn’t have to be holiday-themed, but we are looking for kids working outside, participating in rodeos or 4-H events, bonding with their cattle and horses, or doing anything that kids do in rural America.

Coming Home by Lynsey FreyThis contest is sponsored by Farm Boy, and two $100 gift certificates will be awarded to our top photographers. Additionally, three hats will be given to voters in the contest, as well.

Send your best photo to me at Entries will be accepted until noon on Dec. 7. On Dec. 10, I will annouce our finalists, and readers will have the chance to select our winners. Grand prizes will be awarded on Dec. 13.

For a little inspiration, check out the Winter Wonderland Photo Gallery.

Good luck!
