Photographs that show agriculture related subjects or one of the ag-related areas of study offered at EWC will be strongly considered.

Photographs submitted via CaFE must be available in the following high-res format: 300-600 dpi minimum, min. of 3000 pixels on the long side, vector or .eps file type, and horizontal format. Selected photographs will be digitally printed at 9’-8 ½” wide x 5’- 4″ high. Individuals may submit up to 10 images. If selected, artists are only required to provide the digital file. EWC is responsible for the printing of the images.
The committee will select individual photographs and reserves the right to select some, none, or all photographs submitted by any individual photographer. There are 12 spaces where photographs will be featured in the new building.
