NFU Cymru photography competition at the Royal Welsh Show

The ‘Best of Welsh Farming’ is featured on the NFU Cymru stand at this year’s Royal Welsh Show.

Photographs from across Wales will form part of a ‘Best of Welsh Farming’ exhibition following a competition run by NFU Cymru ahead of the show.

Of the hundreds of photos submitted, 25 were shortlisted for display in the exhibition, with the winner also receiving a farm voucher.

NFU Cymru President and competition judge Aled Jones was overwhelmed with the quality of the photos submitted, he said: ‘The photographs that have been submitted to this competition really show the true scale of the work being done on farms in Wales; work that helps feed our ever-growing population, work that improves our wildlife and biodiversity, work that helps keep jobs in rural Wales, work that brings hundreds of thousands of visitors to the country of Wales and a job that ultimately personifies the heart of rural life.

“The shortlisted photos will be seen by thousands of visitors to the booth, including politicians, stakeholders, key decision makers and members of the public. Thank you to everyone who submitted photos in this competition. I had a difficult task, but it was a task that I really enjoyed doing.

The winner of the competition, Ellie George from Monmouthshire, was officially announced during the NFU Cymru press conference on Sunday of the show.
