Contest Rules

Cattle in Nature SettingsCattle in Nature Settings

Let's see your photos / artwork of cattle in natural landscapes!

Admin Tips (Feb 14): The main nature setting should belong to the cattle's turf. Any closeups should prove nature landscape. Cattle should not appear confined. Rules below. Thank you and Good luck!

1. Post up to 6 images.
2. Cattle must be alive, and in apparent good health, with no visible signs of injury or disease.
3. Cattle must not appear frightened or be in imminent, obvious danger. Cattle should appear calm.
4. Nature setting must be a visible landscape view. There should be no question of natural landscape. (Any orientation is fine.)
5. Any medium is allowed.
6. No factory farms, stalls, chains, petting zoos, or other signs of rigid confinement. Cattle should appear to be content and roaming free. Cattle may be in a fenced-in, large area (e.g. farmer's field).
7. Cattle may be any bovine from any country. If you can name the breed, all the better!
8. No people or other mammals, please. (i.e. birds, bugs are okay) The focus is on the cattle!

Not required, but nice: Cattle have a lot of personality. Try to let some of it shine in your entries!
