Is there such a thing as too many selfies? Not when they are taken lots of lovely Young Farmers there isn’t.
In a bid to get their hands on a shiny new digital camera, as well as promote the movement and drive membership numbers, YFC members have been getting their selfie sticks out to take awesome photos of their clubs.
Unsurprisingly, the response so far has been massive and, true to form, the Young Farmers have been dreaming up weird and wonderful ways of capturing the spirit of their club.

The competition is part of National Young Farmers’ Week, which runs from 18-24 September, and celebrates the incredible impact that the youth movement has on rural communities and in developing the skills of young people.
To enter all you need to do is take an amazing selfie of as many of your YFC club members as possible.
Then you need to post it on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter, using the hashtag #yfcforlife and tagging @NFYFC and @hopsls in your post.
Remember, photos should be posted during National Young Farmers’ Week to be in with a chance of winning.
To get your creative juices flowing, we’ve picked out nine of YFC club selfies entered so for inspiration. Good luck!

UPTON UPON SEVERN YOUNG FARMERS FAMILY What does Young Farmers mean to us? The opportunity to make life long friendships. Each week experiencing something new, gaining knowledge & skills. ♀️ Pushing boundaries entering embarrassing competitions and spending the whole time laughing about it. Having Club Leaders & Advisory Members to turn to for support & advice. Being able to travel around the UK (and the world!) with YFC Travel. IT MEANS FUN, LEARNING & ACHIEVEMENT! AND IT’S NOT JUST FOR FARMERS #morethanfarming @nfyfc #NFYFC #WFYFC #YFC #NYFW17 #NationalYoungFarmersWeek #yfcforlife #HOPSrecruitment #youngfarmers #yfctravel #funlearningandachievement #flowerarranging #photography #calf #stockjudging #cakedecorating #cookery #fancydress #art #poultryboning #mockauction #painting – what else can you spot?
