National Farmers’ Federation (NFF) President Fiona Simson said it was exciting to see a strong field enter from across the country in the 2022 #AgDayAU photography competition.

“This competition is open to all ages and camera abilities. Some of our best entries have been the unguarded, unplanned pictures from people pulling out the phone at the right moment,” Ms Simson said.

“It was a tough decision for the judges, but the joy captured in the first and second place images put them at the front of the pack.”

Second place went to Bravo for the pickers- Photographer: Heather Radevski, Victoria

“There are so many moments every day in farming that bring a smile to your face, whether it’s the way an animal looks at you or the satisfaction of getting stuck into harvest, and these photos epitomise why we love what we do.”

The NFF partnered with Syngenta for the competition, with the agricultural company providing $5,000 to be shared between six winners.

Syngenta Australia & New Zealand Managing Director, Paul Luxton, said this year’s entries were exceptional, providing a snapshot into the different faces, locations and produce behind Australian agriculture.

Australian farming does not fit into one box, it is the industry for everyone with so many different sectors, landscapes and opportunities to explore and these images depict this diversity and how wonderful it is to be part of that.”
