Information and help

I'm looking for a specific photo

back to top | back to results

4-H State Fair photos that are located on the 4-H SmugMug site can be located by searching for a specific exhibitor's name, the species, award donor name, etc. Enter the desired search term then click on the magnifying glass.

As an alternative, if you know the species or county, you can use one of the links on the 4-H Fair Results web page.

I'd like to order a print of a photo

Once you locate a photo or photos and would like to order professional "Buy" or "Buy Photos" buttons in SmugMug.

Note that the prices you will pay will cover the cost for SmugMug to print the photo, plus an additional amount that helps to fund the other expenses of providing these photos (staff time, equipment, etc.)

I want to download a high-quality image (i.e. for printing locally, at home or for publishing in local newspapers, etc.)

Full resolution (original size) image files are available for download. When viewing a photo, look for the "download" icon to click on and download the photo. At times you will have to hover and slightly move your mouse so that the toolbar, which includes the download icon, will appear.

While any download should get you the full sized image file, you may also find it helpful to access the "Original" sized image by clicking on the "Sizes" icon.

I know a 4-H member and am wondering what ribbon or placing they got

There are multiple ways to find a member, but a good place to start is the search tool on the "All" results page.

You can also search for a member using the "by County" or "by Division" pages and using the filtering and sorting tools on those pages:

I'd like to know how a particular class or species was placed

There are two options for viewing results by class. The first option is to use the links under each species on the main results page. The other is to use the "by Division" listing page.

I can find the person I am looking for, but there is no placing listed

The most likely reason for this is that either the judging for that activity has not happened yet, or the results are still being processed for posting. Please check back later. Our goal is to get results posted within 1-2 days of the completion of judging.

I know that someone got a purple ribbon, but I can't find their photo

It will take 24 hours (or possibly longer) to get photos posted, following the completion of each judging session. Please check back later to see if the photo is posted then.

It is also possible, due to the participant's availability for photos, that some purple ribbon winners did not get their photos taken. In other words, it is often up to the participant to be a particular place at a particular time to have their photo taken, and not all participants are able to make that happen.

What do the placing and placing abbreviations mean?
