[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.

Two additional top winners (Top Amateur and Top Professional) will be featured in Roast magazine, and professional and amateur winners for each of the four categories will receive brewing equipment, and subscriptions to Roast and Fresh Cup.

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.
