Photography competition 2020 - winners announced!

What better way to round off a turbulent and at times, tricky year with the best of British farming and countryside in 24 incredible photos?

It’s been a record-breaking year for Farmers Weekly‘s ever-popular photography competition and the team has thoroughly enjoyed judging all of the 8,500 submissions.

It took us a while, but we eventually managed to whittle your snaps down to a winner, runner-up and highly commended entry for each of the eight competition categories.

Photography competition 2020

Please note, this competition is now closed.

Farmers Weekly’s 2020 Photography Competition is offering you £500 in cash prizes and a unique opportunity to see your pictures published.

The overall winner will receive £250, with the those taking the second- and third-placed pictures receiving £150 and £100 respectively.

There are eight categories and the competition is open to amateur photographers only.

We’ll publish a selection of the shots we like best, including the eight category winners, in the bumper Christmas issue of Farmers Weekly on 15 December, then announce our overall winner plus the second- and third-prize images in early January.

You can enter as many pictures in as many categories as you wish. All you have to do is upload them to the relevant gallery, including a few details of what they show, as the judges like to read a little context for the pictures.

You can enter photos taken in 2020 or in previous years - and it’s fine to re-submit pictures entered into previous FW photography competitions. They might be ones you’re already fond of or, of course, you might choose to take snaps specifically with this competition in mind.

Don’t be discouraged if you’re not a regular picture-taker, either – some of the images we’ve liked best in previous years have been those snapped in a moment of inspiration on a phone-camera while out and about working.

The closing date for entries is 15 November 2020, so make sure you get yours uploaded before then to be in with a chance of winning one of the great prizes.

The eight categories are:

Remember, you must be an amateur photographer to enter the competition, see the full terms and conditions.

This is your big chance to share and celebrate the best of British farming – so good luck and get uploading!

Please note, this competition is now closed.
