100 Years of Cooperation Photo Contest

Every month, NCBA CLUSA will hold a co-op photo contest with a monthly theme. Members and non-members are encouraged to submit photos they believe demonstrate the power of cooperation or that monthly theme. Monthly winners will receive a co-op prize pack!

Submit for JULY through 7/24 and vote on your favorites throughout the last week of the month here.

Contest Rules:

To enter a photo, every month we will create a Facebook album with any photos we collect from searching for the hashtag #IAmACoop and tagged with our Facebook page or Twitter handle, @NCBACLUSA. Make sure the photo is shared publicly so we can see it! Entrants may also submit a photo to info@ncba.coop with the subject line: Co-op Photo Contest.

Photos will be put into a Facebook album by monthly theme for 1 week at the end of the month. By the end of that week, the photo with the most “likes” in the Facebook album will be the photo contest winner! Winners will receive a co-op prize pack every month.

Photos tagged with #IAmACoop warrant a submission to the photo contest. If any photos tagged with #IAmACoop wish to be removed from the album, contact NCBA CLUSA. Also, NCBA CLUSA cannot guarantee all photos will be placed in the monthly album.
