Three stunning photographs of Nebraska's food, fuel and water will decorate the halls of new facilities at Nebraska Innovation Campus. The winning photographs were unveiled Nov. 16 at the celebration and announcement of the campus's first research collaborator — ConAgra Foods.

Ken Bruce of Grand Island, Benjamin Vogt of Lincoln and Bradley Jensen of Omaha shot the winning photos. Each won an iPad contributed by the contest sponsors, and will have their winning photographs displayed at Nebraska Innovation Campus.

Bruce is the winner of the food division of the photo contest. The Nebraska Wheat Board sponsored the contest. Bruce's photo is a wide-angle shot of a soybean harvest.

Vogt is the winner of the fuel division of the photo contest, sponsored by the Nebraska Soybean Board. Vogt's photo, "Sunrise Sunflower," depicts the fuel of Nebraska — sunlight. "Energy fuels our wildlife, our cropland, our people," Vogt said in his entry.

Jensen is the winner of the water category of the photo contest, sponsored by the Nebraska Corn Board. His photo depicts an August storm rolling in over the horizon. The shot was taken at Cuming City Cemetery north of Blair.

More than 300 photos were submitted.
