Farmers Weekly has picked up two major publishing awards at the Association of Online Publishers annual awards.

Farmers Weekly Interactive was named Business Website of the Year at an awards ceremony on Thursday (6 June).

The Farmers Apprentice initiative – which was a competition designed to get more young people to think of farming as a career – was named Cross-Media Project of the Year.

The judges said the Farmers Apprentice, which culminated in 10 young farmers competing for a £10,000 prize at a farming bootcamp, was a hugely innovative campaign which had a significant impact.

Farmers Weekly’s website was praised for delivering creative and campaigning stories, videos and tools for farmers.
