Winners of Ga. Peanut Calendar photo contest announced

The Georgia Peanut Commission hosted a photo contest June 7-Oct. 1, 2017, to fill the pages of the 2018 Georgia Peanut Calendar, “Photos from the Field.” Peanut farmers from across Georgia were encouraged to submit their best high-resolution photo of peanut production on their farm for a chance to feature the photo in the 2018 calendar.

Nearly 100 entries were submitted from across the peanut belt and only 12 were selected as a monthly feature. Photos were selected based on quality, originality and diversity in the field. Since many outstanding photos were submitted, but only 12 could be used as monthly features, honorable mentions were also selected. Winners and honorable mentions are as follows:
