Photo Competition


Send Us Your Photos!

The 2023 Cowpea Festival Photo Contest is here and the this year’s theme is Tennepea Places! We’re looking for photos from beautiful places all over Tennessee. Please include the surrounding landscape and scenery in your photo. Photos can contain a person or just the landscape with no person included. The contest begins June 2023 and ends on Aug. 22, 2023. (NOTE: Photos taken in 2021 and 2022 will also be accepted if they fit the contest theme.) Judging will take place August 23, and awards will be announced at the International Cowpea Festival and Cook-off on Sept. 9, 2023, in Charleston, Tennessee.

The competition is open to any amateur photographer who lives in Tennessee except ICFC organizers. Young photographers are encouraged to enter the Budding Artists division for those 15 and younger. Only two entries per photographer may be entered in the contest.

Photographs must be submitted through this website. Winners will be announced and awards presented at the festival.
