Stewards of the Soil - People's Choice Award - National Centre for Farmer Health

Who will you choose?

The judging has taken place, and winners have been decided (but we can’t tell you who just yet). Now it’s YOUR chance to choose your favourite ‘Stewards of the Soil’ image, from the Top 50 Finalists below. The most popular photo will win $240.

The Competition Brief:

In recognition of 2015 as ‘International Year of Soil’ the National Centre for Farmer Health invited entrants to share their vision of the relationship between Australian farming and the soil it occurs in, under and on.

This year’s theme was: ‘STEWARDS OF THE SOIL’

We called for images that portrayed the myriad of colours and textures of a soil profile; the incredible produce grown in that soil; farmers working the land and/or working to restore degraded soils; or images that portray efforts at maintaining the soil’s life and sustainability.
