The British Guild of Agricultural Journalists’ 2022 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 2021 and 1 August 2022.
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 October 13.
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 freelancer Jane Carley for her piece in Profi magazine entitled ‘Keep a mixed fleet on track’.
Second place, with a prize of £500, went to Arable Farming’s Alice Dyer for her article ‘Is UK farming set for a new era in plant breeding?’
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 Monday, September 12, 2022.
