The British Guild of Agricultural Journalists’ 2021 Omnia Precision Agronomy Award, sponsored by Hutchinsons is open for entries.
Award entries are open to any Guild member who has had a feature on the use of precision farming technologies in arable agriculture or horticulture published or broadcast between 1 August 2020 and 1 August 2021.
There is a £1,000 prize for the winning article and £500 for the runner up, with the results to be announced at this year’s Guild Harvest Lunch in London on 7 October.
The award reflects the growing use and importance of precision farming technologies in growing crops, and the need for journalist members of the Guild to report on its intricacies and potential with clarity.
Last year’s award was won by Charlotte Cunningham of Crop Production Magazine for an article discussing the complexities and many facets of precision farming and data and information management.
Runner-up was Oli Mark, for his story in Farmers Weekly about the spot and precision spraying techniques available to growers today.
To enter, send a PDF of a print article, a link to an online article or the audio file or script of a broadcast, to Guild Awards Secretary Olivia Midgley.
Your entry should state when and where the piece was published or broadcast.
Deadline for entries is Friday 20 August 2021.
