Farmers Apprentice entry deadline looms

There are less than three weeks left to enter the Farmers Apprentice and be in with a chance of winning the £10,000 prize.

In order to complete their entry, all applicants have to film a short video clip of themselves (no longer than 60 seconds) that shows why they stand out from the crowd and deserve a place at bootcamp.

Just 10 successful applicants will be invited to attend our intensive five-day farming bootcamp in October, where they will take on a range of tasks in a bid to win the £10,000 prize.

To find out more, including important dates for your diary, tips on filming your video entry and to find out what the judges are looking for, go to the Farmers Apprentice website.
