A Look Back at the ASM Photo Contest

The Animal Science Monitor Photo Contest, sponsored by Continental Search, has come to an end, and it’s been an exciting journey. This competition first kicked off in 2016 and enjoyed consecutive runs in 2017 and 2018. After a brief hiatus, we were thrilled to revive it this year, witnessing once again a wide array of photos showcasing the daily lives and beautiful scenes of farm animals, each telling its own unique story.

Spanning from August 1 to September 8, this year’s contest was an open call to all of those residing in the USA and Canada. The straightforward task? Capture the essence of their livestock and poultry through a lens and share it with us to share with a wider audience.

We received many entries from across the USA and Canada, each capturing a unique perspective of farm life. From the rolling pastures of Texas to the serene landscapes of Ontario, the submissions truly covered the breadth and depth of farm life. The response highlighted the shared passion for farming and animal care that unites our community.

Among all entries, Angie Fairfield’s captivating photo of three horses on her farm emerged as the winner. This simple yet powerful image captures the essence of farm life, earning her the $250 prize.

Thanks to All

We extend our deepest gratitude to each participant. The array of photos highlighted not just the picturesque side of farming, but also the hard work, dedication, and love that goes into nurturing livestock. Each submission brought to the fore a unique story, showcasing the varied experiences of farmers across two countries.

Your stories, captured in frames, have added a rich layer to the tapestry of the Animal Science Monitor’s community. We eagerly await the next opportunity to engage, interact, and celebrate the world of farming with you all.

What’s Next

Continental Search is all about building a community where people interested in animal science and farming can connect, share, and learn. The photo contest is one of the many ways we’re making this happen. As we move forward, participants and community members can eagerly anticipate more events, interactive sessions, and platforms that champion the cause of farming, animal husbandry, and the science behind it.

While this year’s contest might be over, the stories it has unearthed and the connections it has fostered will undoubtedly pave the way for more enriched interactions in the coming months.

Congratulations once again to Angie, and a big thank you to all the participants.
