ABP Agricultural Journalism Awards

Held for many years, the Guild's Agricultural Journalism Awards recognise the best in British agricultural journalism – both written and broadcast.

These awards are kindly sponsored by ABP, which became an enthusiastic supporter of the Guild in 2016 as lead sponsor of the annual Harvest Lunch – a role it repeated in 2017.

“The farming press and the industry’s communicators are vital to progressing UK farming, its sustainability and its innovations,” says Richard Phelps, ABP's agriculture director.

“We are delighted to renew our association with the British Guild of Agricultural Journalists and would like to wish all participants every success with these awards.”

The judging panel for these awards comprises leading industry figures and previous winners. Results are announced at the Guild's annual Harvest Lunch each autumn.
