Become the ‘face’ of British food and farming

If you’ve got a face that sums up all that’s best about Britain’s food and farming industries, then we want to hear from you.

There’s still time to enter our competition to find a “face” to front this year’s British Food Fortnight campaign.

The winning person’s face will appear on the tens of thousands of posters and other promotional literature associated with this prestigious event. These appear in shops, supermarkets, pubs, restaurants, schools and farms across the nation.

Perhaps you’ll be a ruddy-cheeked, 60-year-old-farmer with sideburns? A 21-year-old fresh faced agricultural college student? A traditional – or perhaps ultra-chic – farming woman? A teenager, passionate about forging a career in the countryside? We’re looking for a face that conveys the characteristics of which we can be proud – wholesomeness, hard work, integrity, a sense of tradition, healthiness and a bright future.

We’ve got a rather special judge who’ll be helping the FW and BFF judges pick a winner from our shortlist – PR guru Max Clifford.

The winner will also receive a £300 Great Inns gift voucher, allowing them to stay in any of the 22 independently owned, historic Great Inns across the UK and sample award winning menus, using the freshest, regional produce and locally sourced ingredients.

Email your photo to by Tuesday 23 March 2010. Include a line or two about yourself, explaining what your connection with farming or the countryside is, along with a contact number.
