Deadline Extended for the Photo Contest
We are hosting a photo contest for amateur and professional photographers. Anyone is welcome to submit high resolution digital images featuring Bartlett's Farm. Of interest are colorful photos of farm scenery, crops, the farm market, barns, weather, close-ups of vegetables and herbs, and people working at the farm.

Of special interest is a representation of all seasons, including fall and winter shots, but feel free to submit anything. All photos submitted must be shot at Bartlett's Farm or feature Bartlett's Farm at our Main Street truck or at the Farmer's & Artisans Market.

Winning photo entries will be printed in our upcoming book about the farm. Due to be published this fall, the book is being created by publication designer Barbara Gookin, and is about the farm and it's history, with a focus on harvesting food crops.

To participate in this contest, please upload photos to the "Bartlett's Farm Book" group page at Flickr, an online photo hosting site. The web address is here and entries will be accepted through August 7th.

Contestants may upload low resolution images for the purpose of viewing the photos online, as long as a high resolution version of that image is available. A high resolution image is created with a digital camera that shoots at least 6 megapixels, set at it's highest resolution.

Photos that are selected for publication will be given a photo credit in the book, with the name of the photographer, but there is no financial compensation. By submitting photos to this contest, you authorize Bartlett's Farm the right to use the image for promotional purposes related to the book. Photographers whose photos are selected for the book will be contacted by September 1, 2010 through the information associated with their Flickr account. Please contact

Barbara Gookin by e-mail

for any additional information, or questions about the contest.
