The American Agricultural Editors' Association (AAEA) and AG CONNECT Expo & Summit 2013 announce that AG CONNECT Expo & Summit will be a supporting partner of the 2012 AAEA Photographer of the Year award.

AG CONNECT Expo & Summit will join corporate partners Monsanto and Rabo AgriFinance to present the 2012 AAEA Photographer of the Year award on Tuesday, August 7, 2012, during the awards banquet at the Agricultural Media Summit in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

In addition to presenting the winning photographer with a $1,500 stipend, AG CONNECT Expo & Summit will feature a portfolio of the winner's work during the exclusive Celebration of Ag Reception at AG CONNECT Expo & Summit on January 29, 2013, in Kansas City, Missouri.

"AG CONNECT Expo & Summit is proud to again feature the work of the AAEA Photographer of the Year during our opening ceremony," said Sara Truesdale Mooney, show director. "Our opening Celebration of Ag reception is our chance to honor producers and all agribusiness professionals for their contributions to the world's safest and most abundant food supply. At our past shows in 2010 and 2011, the photos taken by past award winners have been a very popular, moving and emotional tribute to farmers and ranchers."

The AAEA Photo Awards Program is sponsored by AAEA through funding provided by Monsanto and Rabo AgriFinance. The goal of the awards program is to recognize the creative talents of AAEA members.

Each year a photographer of the year is selected, based on the collective work entered in the contest. Information about the program may be obtained by contacting the AAEA office at 952-758-6502 or
