**Deadline extended** Could you be the next M&S Farming for the Future award winner and win £1,000?
The 2013 Farming for the Future competition is now open and we’re looking for M&S farmers and growers from each region of the UK, and overseas, who stand out and make a difference to their sector.
We had more entries than ever last year, highlighting the number of M&S suppliers who are going the extra mile to deliver something special in their farming sector. This year we have increased the number of awards we’re making, so each region will have a winner who will receive a cheque for £1,000, and three runners-up who will each receive £100.
It’s quick and easy to enter the awards using the simple online entry form on Producer Exchange. You can nominate yourself or someone else, but if you are nominating someone else, please make sure you have their permission first.
Entries will be shortlisted and the four finalists for each region will be asked to host a short farm visit so that we can get additional farm information and take photo and video footage of each entry. Finalists will be invited to attend the agricultural show for their region where the winner and runner up will be announced.
The deadline for entries is midnight on Thursday 28th February 2013. Deadline extended to midday on Tuesday 19th March 2013
