Harvest 2019: 6 super snapshots from our photo competition

There’s just over a week left to submit your entries into Farmers Weekly’s annual harvest photo competition and be in with a chance of seeing your image on the magazine front cover.

The entry deadline is midnight on 8 September and we’ll reveal the winning harvest shot on 20 September, along with several runners-up.

With a record-breaking number of submissions this year, the task of selecting just one image will be tougher than ever.

How to enter

Visit our harvest 2019 gallery to upload your photos and videos, check out what others have been sharing and to read the full terms and conditions of the competition.

We will also be sharing our favourite harvest photos and videos on our FacebookTwitter and Instagram pages – so keep an eye out.

When uploading your entries, don’t forget to add a short description telling us where the photo was taken and what it shows.

Top tip – cover-worthy images will need to be high-resolution (that’s about 2,400 pixels wide or a minimum 2MB file size) and suitable to be cropped to a square.

For inspiration, check out some of our top picks below and see last year’s winning harvest photo and the runners-up.
