Grayson LandCare(GLC) is sponsoring a pest and beneficial bug photography contest. This was originally planned to be a special class of the Grayson County Fair photography contest. Unfortunately, like so many large events this year, the Fair has been cancelled. However, we decided to proceed with the competition.
These should be common pests of our local vegetable and fruit crops. Rather than artistic presentation, we are looking for clarity of the image for easy identification. Including the plant where the bug was located would also be helpful. Independence Farmers Market is planning to publish a hyper local gardening book based on their “Grow more vegetables” classes. By entering this completion, you give GLC/IFM the right to use your photographs in the book. All photos will be credited to the photographer. 1st place is $100, 2nd $50 and third $25. High resolution digital photographs can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
