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.
About Red Tractor
Red Tractor was established in 2000 and has grown to become the UK’s biggest farm and food standards scheme, covering animal welfare, food safety, traceability and environmental protection. We are a small, not for profit company, run by the food industry to promote clearer labelling and ensure food originates from a trustworthy source. The way that our food is farmed and prepared is regularly checked by independent experts to make sure it is of a good standard.
The Red Tractor Assurance 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.
