FAQ

  • If you've entered the contest before you never need to create a new account!

  • That means you're not logged into your Facebook account on that browser. Open a tab or new window to login to your Facebook account. When you return the the Fields-of-Corn voting page they should appear ready, if not use your refresh button and that should solve the problem. 

  • You will need a Facebook account to vote/"like."

    You can create an account through Fields-of-Corn.com and login through the site from there you choose to login through Facebook if that is your preference.

  • You may enter as many times as you like, but you may not enter the same photo twice, even in a different category. Only one winning photo will be selected per entrant.

  • Once your photo is submitted it becomes part of a photo library resource for the National Corn Growers Association and affiliate state organizations, and other groups NCGA approves to use. Please make sure you understand the rules when you submit your photos. Please try again.

  • In 2015 a winner was selected holding a treated seed with bare hands when it was pointed out that under no circumstances should you or the subject of your photo handle treated seeds without protection. So we no longer accept them since it is a risky practice. 

  • No, the same photo can only be entered once, even if you think it qualifies for more than one category.
