Time to Share
With New Zealand in lockdown it is a perfect opportunity to share stories, photos and even videos of work and play on the farm, but not just with fellow farmers – let’s show the rest of the country why we are so proud of farming.
Through print and social media we want to gently remind townies where their food comes from. That there is good news despite Covid-19 and it is in the countryside. And give them something to smile about.
Send in your photo entries and a note explaining what it is about and where you farm. It may be a landscape, action shot or humorous. You could also send in an amusing or interesting story, no more than 250 words with an ‘out-there’ pic.
We will put the best entries in Country-Wide magazine and online. While you are taking the pics, videos and writing stories, we’ll sort the prizes.
Photo files should ideally be 1mb or larger.
Send your entries to:
Or through Facebook:
Post the video on your page but make sure to tag @CountryWideNZ in the caption so we see it, or send the videos to us on Facebook messenger.
