Why enter?

Be the best: Have you spent your formative years flying below the radar? Well this is your chance to shine. Think superman.
Be your own boss: Confident in your ideas and stubborn enough to see them through? Winning could easily lead to your own business.

Career prospects: At bootcamp you will be mentored by top farm business leaders, helping you to walk away full of confidence, ideas and a unique CV, even without the £10,000.

Fame: All the action from bootcamp will be captured as part of 6-part series of films that will be broadcast at the end of 2014. The more people that see you and know what you’re capable of, the more opportunities that will come your way. Simple.

Fortune: Ok, not strictly fortune, but if you’re the type of resourceful candidate we’re looking for then £10,000 could be the start of something big.

STEP 3: Get your camera out and tell us in 60 seconds why you’re awesome. Don’t be shy and remember to smile.

STEP 4: Upload it to Youtube by 30 May and send us a link to your video. Job done.
