Netherthorpe Communicator of the Year Award

Often referred to simply as "the Netherthorpe", the Guild's Communicator of the Year Award is our highest and most prestigious accolade.

The Netherthorpe's perpetual "crowing cockerel" trophy – displayed at The Farmers Club – is presented annually to the Guild Member who has made an outstanding and sustained contribution to agricultural communications.

It is judged from nominations made by Members who identify someone who has contributed to the dissemination of knowledge and understanding about agriculture, in its widest sense, over a number of years. 

This can have been by the written word or through editing, by production or presentation on radio and television. It is open to press and public relations members of the Guild, as well as journalists, editors and photographers.
