South Dakota Stockgrowers Announce First Annual Photo Contest!

3/15/2020 – Rapid City, SD

The South Dakota Stockgrowers are set to sponsor their first annual photo contest.  In an effort to shine a spotlight on true conservation and to tell the story of modern-day livestock production along with the people and places involved in this way of life, the SDSGA will be accepting entries of original photographs from April 1, 2020 until August 1, 2020.

“This is an idea I’ve been kicking around for quite some time.” Said SDSGA Executive Director James Halverson.  “After some recent conversations, we just decided to do it. Cameras are everywhere and we know how beautiful our ranches, animals, landscapes, loved ones, and western events are.  Our hope is this will encourage folks of all ages to get out and capture these images in order to preserve what we are doing.  Everyone talks about “telling our story” what better way than through the lens of a camera and publication in our magazine, website, and social media platforms”

“Off the top of my head I can think of several Stockgrowers members and supporters who are active, talented photographers, and I’m sure there are many more out there.  Why not support these folks and their work by publishing it to help them get the recognition and exposure they deserve?” Halverson added.
