Celebrating Aussie farm life through your eyes: photo competition

 

from the farmer health website:

The commonly portrayed view of farming and agriculture through much of the media in recent years has been one of drama or gloom – either hazed by the dust of drought or submerged beneath swelling floodwaters.                                      

For those that have experienced aspects of country life – from farmers to visiting urbanites – we know there is much to celebrate! Despite the adversity, most farmers will tell you they are still farming because they love it and the endless trail of meandering caravans through rural Australia is testimony to the attraction held by the broader population.
 
Here is your opportunity to share your positive vision of all that agriculture and farming means to you.
 
Let your photograph tell a thousand words – images that portray our brown, green and gold paddocks; our ‘clean and green’ food bowl; the landscape on a foggy morning or bursting with afternoon sunshine;  machinery hard at work or resting in anticipation; livestock holding our gaze; farmers working safely, or your vision for the future of agriculture.
 
The photography competition ‘In Focus – Celebrating Farm Life’ is part of the National Centre for Farmer Health biennial conference ‘Sowing the Seeds of Farmer Health’ taking place from 17th – 19th September, 2012. 
                                                                                      
Help celebrate the farming families that support this industry!
