FW launches Charity Calendar Photo Competition

Farmers Weekly has teamed up with two charity partners to celebrate the people who are the backbone of UK agriculture in a 2025 calendar featuring your photos.

We’re after your best shots of farming people during the agricultural year for our Charity Calendar Photo Competition, run in conjunction with Rabi and Rsabi.

Photos must be in landscape format, have been taken in the past 18 months and capture the theme “Our farming people – through the seasons”.

You can enter any number of images that document the hard work and dedication of farmers in winter, spring, summer and autumn, whether in the tractor cab, calving pen or local show.

Twelve winning images will feature in a 2025 calendar that will be sold through both charties’ online shops as well as at agricultural events, and all proceeds will be split equally between Rabi and Rsabi.

The money raised will help continue the work of these charities, which provide financial, emotional and practical support to those in need in the agricultural community.

Covering all sectors, from soft fruits to broad acre crops and livestock, your images will reflect the diverse and demanding job of putting food on the nation’s plates, and how it is inextricably linked to rural life.

From the highs and lows of lambing to the hot toil of harvest to the simple joys of the countryside, the calendar will reflect agriculture’s challenges and triumphs.

As well as appearing in the calendar, the winning images – together with a selection of highly commended entries – will feature as part of an exhibition to be held in the Houses of Parliament in spring 2024.

How to enter

The competition is open to amateur photographers until 15 March. Simply upload your shots at fwi.co.uk/charity-calendar, where you can also read the full terms and conditions.

Don’t forget to provide your contact details so we can get in touch if you make the shortlist, and give us a bit of information about where the picture was taken and what it’s showing.

Photos should be landscape format and high resolution.
