Below are a few examples from last year’s contest.

VOTING: We will host a Facebook voting contest on the Focus Marketing Group Facebook page to determine the winner beginning May 8th and will run until May 15th. The winners will be announced before May 20th! The winning images will be used as the FMG cover photo and winners will receive #focusswag for their efforts.

NOTE: By submitting your photo to this contest, you are giving permission for Focus Marketing Group to use your image in forthcoming promotional materials prepared by FMG.

When selecting your images for the contest, remember these 4 things —

  1. Your subject should be in focus, not grainy or pixelated

  2. Outdoor, natural light is best.

  3. Avoid distracting shadows. You can really disguise something beautiful if you’re not careful.

  4. Tell a story.

Good luck choosing your favorite photo of your 2017 calf crop! We love hosting this contest every year and admiring your work!
