The Indiana State Department of Agriculture (ISDA) announced the ten winning photographers for the 2020 Indiana Agriculture Photo ContestLt. Governor Suzanne Crouch and ISDA Director Bruce Kettler recognized the winners during the 2020 Celebration of Agriculture event at the Indiana Statehouse.  

“From rural life to agricultural landscapes, these photographers were able to capture the essence of Indiana agriculture,” said Lt. Gov. Crouch. “I look forward to showcasing their photos this year.”

The winning photos were selected from hundreds of entries in the following four categories: Agritourism, Conservation, Faces of Agriculture and On the Farm. Two winners were selected from each category, along with two winners overall.

To be considered, the photo had to be taken in the state by an Indiana resident. The photos were evaluated by a panel of independent judges based on creativity, composition and category representation.

The winning photos will be displayed throughout the year in the Lt. Governor’s business offices.

The following includes the photo contest winner of Agritourism Category for 2020:
