The Farmers Weekly Photo Competition is the highlight of the year, showcasing the very best of British farming in a series of stunning photos.
We had thousands of excellent entries sent in to our galleries and we enlisted the help of farmer and former winner of Farmers Weekly’s Harvest Highlights photo competition, Heather Ross as our guest judge.
The top image from each category was then considered for the “winner of winners” title, which comes with a £250 cash prize.
Our overall winner was by Vicky Drysdale’s “Bringing flock down to pens.”
See the winners, runners-up and highly-commended photos in each of the eight categories below.
