The BGAJ PR award which recognises excellence in agricultural and supply chain public relations and communications is now open for entries.
The award, now in its second year, will honour the most successful public relations campaign or project undertaken during 2019/20 by BGAJ members on behalf of a client business – whether agency or sole trader – operating specifically in agriculture or the agri supply chain.
While there is no financial prize for this award, as it is not currently sponsored, the value lies in peer recognition of sector-leading performance.
The winner will be announced at the online Harvest Festival in October and will be licensed to use a special logo on their marketing material for one year.
Following a motion put forward at the AGM, there will no longer be an entry fee for this award.
