Society photo competition - back for 2024!

Entries close on Monday 23 September, so you’ve got all summer to get some fabulous photos taken, all the entries will posted to Facebook soon after.
This year the photographer of the picture with the most overall likes will win a fabulous prize – a complementary half day on-farm photoshoot with Chrissie Long from Country Girl Media*
