Bids now open for farm awards

ENTRIES and nominations are being sought from Dumfries and Galloway for The British Farming Awards.

The aim is to shine a light on the work taking place across the industry and the driving forces behind it.

It will celebrate the diversity and resilience of UK farmers and their businesses.

There will be an entry guidance day on Friday April 12 designed to assist entrants in navigating the entry process and offer guidance on crafting a compelling submission. To reserve a time slot, email [email protected]

Among the prizes up for grabs is Farming Hero, designed to recognise one individual’s dedication to the farming industry.

It will be given to a member of the agricultural industry who has worked tirelessly for UK farming, either through delivering innovation, championing the needs for fellow farmers, spearheading change and/or promoting the industry to the wider public.

New for 2024 is the title of Agricultural Influencer of the Year, which will recognise a champion of the industry who is using digital mediums to raise the profile of the farming industry and to educate wider non-farming audiences on the challenges they face daily, and the many triumphs British agriculture has to shout about.
