Accelerated Genetics Published on 14 July 2011

Are you ready to get started on the 2011 Photo Contest? Accelerated Genetics has two new themes for you to try your photography skills on. "Calves" and "In Their Environment." Gift cards awarded for top entries in both categories!

For "Calves," take pictures of dairy or beef calves in any location: hutches, calf barns, on pasture, at the fair, etc. Calves must be relatively clean. Action shots are preferred. For "In Their Environment," take photos of beef or dairy cows and/or calves "in their environment:" in freestall barns, on pasture, in the milking parlor, on a dry lot, etc. Animals must be relatively clean. Action shots are preferred. Photos may include people.



All photos entered should be color. Digital images are preferred and need to be sent as a high resolution (300 dpi) JPEG image with photo size at 8- x 10-inch. Digital images can be sent via e-mail or on a CD. If you send a printed photograph, please make sure the image is printed from a photo center, as at home printers do not print high enough quality photographs that can be utilized in print. Printed photographs will only be accepted at the sizes of 5- x 7-inch or 8- x 10-inch. Other photo sizes will not be considered for the contest.

The entry deadline is Sept. 1. For each photo entered, include: name, address, phone, location photo was taken, photo title and photo category. Then send your entries to: Accelerated Genetics, Kelly Kendall, E10890 Penny Lane, Baraboo, WI 53913. If you have any questions, call (800) 451-9275 ext. 5423.

All entries submitted will become the property of Accelerated Genetics and could be used in future publications or projects. Photographs will not be returned, so remember to make a copy for yourself. PD
