The 15th annual Countryside Alliance Awards celebrate rural businesses that go the extra mile, who support their local economy and are the unsung heroes in every community.

It's down to the general public to nominate their favourite rural businesses, and put them forward to be considered for a prestigious Countryside Alliance Award. Last year alone we had over 17,000 nominations!

The applicants are judged on a range of criteria including their passion and commitment, sense of community, championing local food and the energy and diversity of their business.

The Regional winners will be invited to attend the Champions Reception at the House of Lords in London in June 2020 where the National Winners will be announced.

We hope you will join us in celebrating the fantastic rural businesses in your area and help spread the word that nominations are open to businesses across the country.
