2015 Awards are now closed to nominations - judging will take place soon
The 11th annual Countryside Alliance Awards, aka The Rural Oscars, honour rural businesses through the characters who work so hard to make our countryside tick. Across several categories we give a voice and a platform to the unsung heroes of the countryside.
The Awards categories are as follows:
- Local Food
- Village Shop/ Post Office
- Rural Tourism (new to 2015)
We are now closed to nominations.
Finalists will now be chosen. A maximum of five businesses will be shortlisted in each category. These business will then be visited and judged and will be invited to the Parliamentary finals in April 2016 to hear if they are Champion of their category.
February 2016 - champions of Welsh business will be announced at Cardiff Bay
April 2016 the Parliamentary Grand Final will be held and a Champion announced in each category.
Please note that the Awards run across England and Wales only. Scotland has its own Awards scheme.
