Photo contest winners

Updated: Jun 6, 2019

With over 400 photos submitted to the inaugural Georgia's Rural Center Photo Contest, we captured some great views of rural Georgia from the mountains in north Georgia to the sandy soils in south Georgia.


Thank you to all who submitted photos, engaged in people's choice voting, and spread the views of rural Georgia. We are extremely excited about all the great pictures we received showcasing rural Georgia. Be on the lookout for your photo as the next "photo of the week" or other places throughout the website or print materials. A representative from Georgia's Rural Center will be in contact with winners by Wednesday, Feb. 27, 2019, to arrange distribution of prize winnings.
