The National Ploughing Championships Innovation Arena Awards, in conjunction with the Irish Farmers Journal and Enterprise Ireland, has opened for applications.

The Innovation Arena at the National Ploughing Championships in Screggan, from 19 to 21 September, will showcase products made by Irish agricultural companies.

Winners will be announced across a range of categories including agri engineering and agricultural technology. The overall award winner will receive a top prize worth €15,000 from Enterprise Ireland and the Irish Farmers Journal which includes advertising and PR support, mentoring and a cash prize of €5,000.

The Irish Farmers Journal is leading change and innovation across the agricultural industry

Last year’s competition attracted 200 entries; 55 were shortlisted as 2016 finalists and invited to exhibit in the Innovation Arena.

“The Farmers Journal is leading change and innovation across the agricultural industry, and indeed in our own business,” Irish Farmers Journal editor Justin McCarthy said at the launch. “Irish agricultural products, both in food and manufacturing, have a worldwide reputation. Our green-based production systems and spin-off industries are the foundation of our success.”

All finalists will receive an advertising voucher to promote their innovation through the Irish Farmers Journal and a subsidised stand in the Innovation Arena for 2017. The final participants for the 2017 Innovation Arena will be selected on 22 August.

“This year sees the partnership grow even stronger with the largest arena ever and a strong focus on Irish manufacturing and products,” Anna May McHugh, managing director of the National Ploughing Championships, said at the launch.
