[O]regon Coffee Board’s second annual Photo Awards is currently accepting submissions. The contest is open to both amateur and professional photographers, with all entrants competing in four categories within the coffee supply chain: Farming, Roasting, Creating, and Experiencing.

Last year’s Best in Show winner, Mark Shimahara, was awarded an all-expenses-paid trip to Tanzania, made possible by Monin Gourmet Flavored Syrups. This year’s winner will win a week-long trip to Antioquia, Colombia, to tour farms there.

Photos will be accepted until October 13, and the 2015 winners will be announced at Coffee Fest Portland, October 23-25 at the Oregon Convention Center.
