An award which recognises journalism showcasing the role of engineering in farming, food and energy production has opened for entries.

Now in its 12th year, the Guild’s IAgrE Award is generously sponsored by the Institution of Agricultural Engineers – the professional body for engineers, scientists, technologists and managers in the land-based sector.

Celebrating GAJ members with a passion for writing about innovation in the agriculture, horticulture, forestry, amenity or rural environment sectors, the award is now in its twelfth year and carries a £1,500 prize pot.


IAgrE chief executive Charlie Nicklin said: “We believe by supporting the British Guild of Agricultural Journalists Awards we are helping to increase awareness of the Institution and its work promoting professionalism in the development and application of technology in the agricultural industry.

“It is also an opportunity to continue to build relationships with journalists and recognise well authored technical articles about innovation and technology in the sector. IAgrE welcomes membership from all those involved in science and technology in agriculture and the land-based industries


Entries are limited to one per member reporting on engineering – in all its forms – published between March 1, 2023 and February 28, 2024.

The overall winner will receive a commemorative plaque and £1,000. The runner-up will receive a commemorative plaque and £500. Awards will be presented at the Guild’s Bangers and Beers reception, to be held at this year’s Cereals Event.
