The nucleon electromagnetic form factors are calculated in a light cone QCD sum rules framework using the most general form of the nucleon interpolating current. Using two models for the distribution amplitudes, we predict the form factors. The predictions are also compared with existing experimental data. It is shown that our results describe remarkably well the existing experimental data.
