- Must be related, in some way, to agriculture and related industries

*Contest Rules and Disclaimer
The Ag Express Electronics photo-calendar contest entry period is June 15, 2023 through October 23, 2023 and is open to Ag Express Electronics customers, past or present who are residents of the United States or Canada (excluding Quebec). Eligible entrants must have done business with Ag Express Electronics prior to photo entry, must subscribe to Ag Express promotional emails (email opt-in is an option on the contest entry form webpage) and submit their ag-themed photographs via the contest entry form.
No other forms of submission (email, social media, messenger, text message, etc.) will be accepted or considered. No purchase or payment will increase the odds of winning. The odds of winning depend upon the total number of eligible entries received during the entry period. Entering this contest does not guarantee you any specific outcome, winnings or credit. The winning photographs will be selected by a judging panel based on their discretion and interests of the agriculture industry.
The definition of agriculture as focused on in this context is at the complete discretion of the judging panel, but includes everything from row crop and commodity farming, vegetable farming, fruit farming, dairy farming, other non-dairy farming, ranching, and all-related activities surrounding life and work on these farms.
All photos submitted are released to Ag Express Electronics to be used at the company's discretion in the 2024 calendar, in promotions around the contest and its winners, in promotions of future photo contests, and in related web pages and marketing materials in perpetuity without requiring consent from or compensation to the photographer and/or the person making the submission.

Recency or volume of business conducted between the person submitting the image and AG Express Electronics will have no bearing on selection of winners.
