The International Brangus Breeders Association is looking for your best photo(s)!

IBBA is hosting our latest photo contest. Many photos will also be chosen to be beautifully displayed in numerous issues of the Brangus Journal, advertisements and/or articles, as well as many other facets of the Brangus world.

IBBA members (and non-members) from around the world can submit their best high-resolution photo of their favorite Brangus cattle through the Photo Contest form. Don’t have a high-resolution photo? That’s okay too. We are also opening submissions to our “snapshot” category which is allowing for phone pictures and other images that don’t qualify for the high resolution category.

Multiple winners will be chosen (10 in each category) and 2 grand prize winners will be selected, so the chances of being chosen are increased! Category winners will receive IBBA merchandise and the 2 grand prize winners will receive a 5L bottle of Dectomax pour-on and a i50k genetic test. (Roughly a $400 value)

Some things to keep in mind:

  1. Steer clear of any photos that could be viewed as offensive.
  2. Think of the photo’s layout and the way that a photo can be used.
  3. Edit your photo to perfection prior to submitting. While our judges have the ability to see what a photo could be with a touch of editing, a photo with the ideal saturation level stands out among the others.
