LEAF Public Engagement Award
This award celebrates excellence in print and broadcast journalism covering the many ways farmers engage with the public to put across positive messages about farming and food production.
Entries may describe the way farmers have opened their farms to the public, created a direct sales channel, used technology to tell their traceability story or in some way gone above and beyond to communicate farming’s great stories to consumers.
To enter, send a high resolution PDF of an article published in print, a link to an article published online or the script of a broadcast to Ben Pike with a note of where and when the piece was published or broadcast.
LEAF (Linking Environment And Farming) is the leading organisation delivering more sustainable food and farming. We work with farmers, the food industry, scientists and consumers, to inspire and enable sustainable farming that is prosperous, enriches the environment and engages local communities.
The LEAF Public Engagement Award celebrates articles and broadcasts featuring farmers who go above and beyond the call of duty to tell the story of UK food production.
Judges are looking for stories that highlight farmers who realise how important it is for consumers to understand where their food comes from and take the opportunity to get the message across.
