We’ve received thousands of entries for the 2008 Photography Competition – either emailed to us digitally, posted as prints or uploaded directly to FWi.

Our panel of judges have looked at every one and the 36 winning and commended entries will appear in Farmers Weekly next Friday (19 December).

In the meantime, you can see the shortlist of pictures from which these 36 will be chosen in this gallery. About 80 pictures made our shortlist chosen because of their subject matter, composition and the technical ability shown by the photographer.

Thankyou to everyone who submitted an entry – don’t forget to get your copy of Farmers Weekly on Dec 19 to find out the final winners.
