ASI Announces 2013 Sheep Photo Contest
May 17, 2013

It is time to start thinking about the American Sheep Industry Association's (ASI) 2013 Photo Contest. The contest is open to all who wish to enter, which means you do not have to be involved in the U.S. sheep, lamb or wool industries to participate. The only rule is that your photograph must include sheep. Entries postmarked by Aug. 16 will be considered. 
 
Entries will be judged on clarity, content, composition and appeal. More than $1,000 will be awarded, with awards of $125 going to the grand-prize winner in each of the four categories listed below; $75 for the first runner-up in each category; and a $50 prize for the second runner-up in each of the four categories. The winning photos will be highlighted in the October 2013 issue of Sheep Industry News. 
 
The four categories are:
 
Action - Photographs of activities such as shearing, wool classing/skirting/baling, moving/trailing sheep, lambing, tagging, feeding, etc.
Scenic (East) - Photographs of sheep outdoors located east of the Mississippi River. (Photos entered in this category cannot include people.)
Scenic (West) - Photographs of sheep outdoors located west of the Mississippi River. (Photos entered in this category cannot include people.)
Open Category - Photographs with subject matter that does not fall into the three above-listed categories.
