The Rural Oscars celebrate 10 years

This year the Countryside Alliance Awards, aka the Rural Oscars, celebrate their tenth anniversary.

In their first decade the Rural Oscars have established themselves as the definitive rural award to win, saluting not just rural businesses but the people and the hard work behind each one. We couldn't have established these awards without the enthusiastic support of the hundreds of businesses who have been put forward by public nomination. Our roster of UK Champions is impressive and so to mark this year's milestone we are running a one-off public vote-led competition, whereby each of the UK Champions re-compete to become the Champion of Champions in one of four categories.

We will open to public vote at 9am on Saturday 1st November and close to votes at 6pm on Sunday 30th November  

In the running for the UK & Ireland are the following businesses. Click here to find out who is in the running for the Welsh Champion of Champion Awards.
