New Forest Awards 2024

Update 3 June 2024: Thank you for your nominations. Entries are now closed. The winners will be revealed at the New Forest Show in July.

Who are your New Forest champions? Time to nominate!

We’ve teamed up with the Country Land and Business Association (CLA) once again with our annual awards celebrating rural success stories in the New Forest.

The New Forest National Park Awards, supported by Moore Barlow, recognise the people in and around the New Forest who have made outstanding contributions to the environment, rural economy and our communities.

Winners will be crowned at the New Forest and Hampshire County Show on 31 July.

Now in their 11th year, the awards celebrate sustainability champions, young farmers and commoners, diversified rural businesses, young environmental champions, farming and nature champions, and the best supporters of local produce who work in and around the National Park.

Individuals, businesses and organisations can nominate themselves or be nominated by others, but must be living, working or practising within the New Forest Awards area (see map here).

Nominations are invited for the following categories:

  • Young Farmer/Commoner of the Year (aged 35 and under)
  • Best Supporter of Local Produce in conjunction with the New Forest Marque
  • Sustainability Champion
  • Young Environmental Champion (aged 25 and under)
  • Rural Diversification
  • Farming and Nature Champion.


Please read the Awards Regulations documents at the foot of this page.
