2015 Photo Contest Winners

Hosted by the Kansas Young Farmers & Ranchers (YF&R) Committee

Sponsored by 

The annual Kansas Farm Bureau (KFB) Photo Contest is hosted by the state Young Farmers & Ranchers (YF&R) Committee. The contest is open to any amateur photographer who is a Farm Bureau® member of any county in Kansas. 

Photo contest winners will be featured among several other entries in a 2016 calendar generously provided by the 2015 KFB Photo Contest sponsor, UMB. These calendars will be distributed at the KFB Annual Meeting and YF&R Leaders Conference this winter. Thank you to UMB for your support!

This year's competition was steep so the results include a few honorable mentions that were too good not to share. First and second place winners will receive awards at the 2015 KFB Annual Meeting and attendees will choose the People's Choice award from these six photos. Thank you to all those who entered the 2015 KFB Photo Contest and congratulations to the winners!
