Advanced Content by Red Barn Media Group is proud to announce that its FarmLife content program, produced for AGCO, took several top awards at the 2016 Agricultural Media Summit in the American Agricultural Editors' Association (AAEA) Communications Awards program.

The program recognizes the top work from writers, designers and photographers in the agricultural media field from across North America.

Top awards in the program are Story of the Year, Photo of the Year, Writer of the Year, Designer of the Year and Photographer of the Year.

For 2016, Red Barn Media Group Creative Director Jamie Cole was named Photographer of the Year for his work in the FarmLife content program, and was also named runner-up as Writer of the Year.
