18 August 1995



The contest is open to residents of Great Britain and Northern Ireland aged five years and more but less than 12 years on the closing date, except the children of employees of Britains, Featherstone Audax, Reed Business Publishing, the printers of farmers weekly

and their families.

The prizes will be awarded to the 30 entries which in the consideration of the judges

have the most impact and show enthusiasm for and knowledge of farming, as well as artistic merit.

The prizes must be taken as offered. If a winner is unable to accept the prize it will be

forfeited to the next best entry.

No responsibility can be accepted for any entry lost, delayed, or damaged in the post. Proof of posting will not be accepted as proof of receipt.

The judges decisions and those of the Editor will be legally binding on all matters

affecting the contest. No correspondence will be entered into.

The winners will be notified and the results published in farmers weekly.

LOTS of farmers grow maize to feed their cattle these days, and sunflowers grown for their oil is another crop that is gaining interest. If you grow either of these on your play farm then you will need the latest toy from Britains in order to harvest them.

This is the 1:32 scale model Kemper Champion 3000 rotary header. It has a specially designed mounting device to make it fully compatible with Britains new Renault 103.54 and most of Britains other medium and large tractors.

You can buy the header in most good toy shops for about £6.45, in a set with a Massey Ferguson 3680 tractor for about £13.75, or with a Claas forage harvester (as pictured on this page) for around £16.50.

We have 30 sets of Kemper header and Claas forage harvester toys to give away to the winners of our latest Farmlife picture competition.

Most people send postcards when they are on holiday, so during your long holiday from school we are inviting you to send us your own special "postcard" from the farm. Paint/draw a picture of the farm on which you live or a farm that is of special interest to you. We should like the picture to be much bigger than a real postcard – A4 size (that is 29cm x 21cm or 113/4in x 8in) would be ideal.

Farms are busy places at this time of year, so we expect that the pictures will reflect this. Pictures may be in paints or crayons, just so long as colours are strong and clear.

The competition is open to children who will be five years old and not yet 12 years by Sept 1, 1995. The judges will take the contestants age into consideration when deciding the winners. No entries can be returned.

Send your pictures to Farmlife/Britains Picture Competition, farmers weekly, Quadrant House, The Quadrant, Sutton, Surrey SM2 5AS, to arrive by Fri, Sept 1, 1995. Please put your name, age and address on the back of your entry.
