Every year VistaComm holds an internal photo contest among its associates. A different theme is chosen each year to ensure that the photos have a similar feel. This is a fun way to show off our talents, and have a little friendly competition at the same time. All of the photos go into our library of images used in various VistaComm publications, while the top photos find their way into a calendar we send to our clients each year. Congratulations to Darcy Maulsby who took home 3 out of the top 4 spots in our voting-a pretty impressive feat when you consider you can only submit 3 photos for voting!
DARCY MAULSBY: Native grasses and wildlife habitat co-exist enhance this farm just down the road from where I live, reminding me that both conservation and production agriculture are essential components of the countryside.
BURKE PERRY: My son and I had been running around the countryside trying to get some “golden light” shots of wheat harvest. We managed to track down some combines and get some nice shots. This was just a scene that appeared as we were headed home after sunset. Good end to a good day…and some really rich twilight.
3RD PLACE (TIE)
DARCY MAULSBY: If you didn’t know this was corn, you might wonder why this structure appears to be “buried” in the shifting desert sands. Truly a bountiful harvest here in the Iowa countryside.

DARCY MAULSBY: The fact that someone felt patriotic enough to display a flag at the end of their lane near this pasture inspired patriotism in me, too. With the bales in the background, this image reflects the independence that defines America, especially rural America.
Involving employees, and even your community, in a contest is a great way to generate photos, videos and stories that you can use in your marketing and communication efforts.
To our clients: Be on the lookout for next year’s calendar, featuring these photos and more, as we head into the holiday season.
