A picture is worth a thousand words. So next time you see a beautiful South Georgia setting, get out your camera and take a picture!

The 2011 Southwest Georgia Farm Credit Rural Living Photo Contest is about to get underway.

Photos will be judged in four categories:

1. Kids and Nature

2. Life on the Farm

3. At Home in the Country

4. Rural Landscapes (no people, just gorgeous shots of the land!)

“We want people to look around and take in the beauty of southwest Georgia,” said Liz Nogowski, director of marketing at Southwest Georgia Farm Credit. “And what better way for people to recognize the beauty of rural landscapes, farms, ranches, our farmers at work or their kids in the field, then by capturing it with a photo.”

Winning photos will be used in the 2012 Southwest Georgia Farm Credit calendar and others will be featured in the winter issue of Wiregrass Land & Living magazine.

Awards will be given for the top three photos in each category at $100, $50 and $25. A Grand Prize of $150 will be awarded for best overall photo.

The contest officially began June 1. Deadline for entries is Aug. 31.
