A look at the Wheatbelt
The CBH Group’s annual photographic competition is on again and searching the Wheatbelt for the best photographic depictions under the theme of Year of the Farmer.
This year will mark the 12th year the competition has been running and entrants are encouraged to let loose their imagination and creativity to visually depict life on the land for grain growers, their families and community in commemoration of the 2012 Australian Year of the Farmer.
The competition is divided into five categories: CBH Group members and their immediate families (CBH Grower number required) - six winners; rural community residents (people living in grainbelt communities who are not grain growers) - two winners; CBH Group employees - two winners; children up to and including 15 years of age - two winners and overall winner for the best overall photograph.
Last year Dani McCreery of Kalannie won the best photo overall which depicted her young children jumping over the sunset.
CBH Group chief executive Andy Crane said this year’s theme was all about encapsulating the true spirit of farmers and the vital role they played in the WA landscape.
“In celebration of the Australian Year of the Farmer, our photo competition aims to honour the hard work and dedication of our grain growers, from those who come from small entities right through to large agribusiness and also recognise the families, communities and regions that stand behind them,” he said.
“It's all about visually capturing the real nature of rural Australians and depicting the unique landscape they work on every day.
“At CBH, we are dedicated to creating and returning value to growers and believe every grower and every story is important and should be celebrated and recognised.”
There will be a mix of cash and other prizes up for grabs.
People can enter a maximum of four photos (with a minimum of 2MB resolution per photo) online through the CBH website or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org , or post entry - along with a completed entry form - to Photo Competition, CBH Group Corporate Affairs, GPO Box L886, Perth, WA 6842.
The competition closes 5pm on August 3.
•More details on the competition are available on the CBH Group website.
