Farming Champion category returns for Bees' Needs Awards 2021

CFE are thrilled to be working with the Bumblebee Conservation Trust and Defra as we continue to champion the good work of farmers in supporting healthy populations of pollinators in our farmed environment for the 3rd year in a row.

Launched during Bees' Needs Week (12th-16th July) the Bees' Needs Awards recognise the efforts of individuals, groups and businesses who encourage and increase pollinator friendly habitats.

Nominations open on 1st September:

Send your completed Bees' Needs Farming Champion application form 2021
to Y2ZlQG5mdS5vcmcudWs= by September 30th to enter.
Entry for the awards will open through CFEonline on September 1st and entries will be judged on the following criteria.
  • Dedication to supporting pollinators
  • Innovation and creativity
  • Promotion to others / awareness-raising of Bees’ Needs
  • Evidence of beneficial impact for pollinators
We encourage all entrants to include photos with their entries, so now is a great time to get out on farm with your camera.

The awards will take place in November, but still to be confirmed as either virtual or in person as in accordance to any changes with Government regulations regarding Covid-19.

Ellenor Litobarski, CFE Project Officer, said:

"After the last year and a half, people are now more aware of the good that healhy natural environment can provide. Bees and other pollinators provide a service to food, biodiversity and public wellbeing. The Bees' Needs Awards are an opportunity to recognise and celebrate the farmers and land managers who are leading the industry in pollinator-friendly practices."
