I know we are all missing the Lithopolis Honeyfest this year, ESPECIALLY the photo competition. But, that doesn’t mean the fun has to stop.

Starting today, Sept 12, 2020 through Friday October 2, 2020. We are accepting a call of artists to submit photos of their lives as a beekeeper.This year has been increasingly challenging, but from what we’ve heard, our bees have been very active. It would be great to see photos of how we’ve adapted with our bees this year.

Please pic a category:

Class 1) Life of a Beekeeper. This can be photos of feeding, or daily activities in the bee yard

Class 2) Cell Phone Photos. They say the best camera is the one you have with you. Sometimes, this is the one in your pocket. We’ve seen some amazing photos from a quick phone shot.

Class 3) Youth (18 and under) Can be combination of both classes 1&2

Sadly there won’t be a printed calendar this year. But, there are REAL Cash prizes, first, second, and third in each category.

We will post the winners on the COBA website and the COBA Facebook group later in November, 2020.

Please send all questions and photos to cobaphotography@yahoo.com please include name of the artwork and the name of the artist.

We look forward to seeing all the wonderful pics as always. Good luck and have fun!

Thank You! Kevin Kise and Josh Arnold, Photo competition coordinators
