How to enter the British Farming Awards

It’s free to enter the British Farming Awards and you can enter as many categories as you like – entering yourself or nominating other individuals or businesses.

But first, you must visit the entry page, register your email address and fill in a short online form, which takes a matter of moments (we timed ourselves – it takes less than a minute and a half!).

Then you can begin an award entry or nomination. This involves filling in details about yourself or who or what business you’re nominating and answering a set of questions about what makes the entrant suitable for the award.

There’s also an option to upload supporting documents. We recommend saving each form as you go. And when you’re ready, you can submit. Good luck!
