The BBC Countryfile Magazine Awards recognise the very best of the British countryside including landmarks, nationals parks, and, of course, good old fashioned British country pubs.
Having been nominated by readers and further scrutinised by a panel of expert judges, five ‘outstanding contenders’ are selected for the shortlist in each category, from which a winner is voted for by the public.
The judging panel includes; John Craven: Captain Countryfile, Phoebe Smith: Author and adventurer, Mark Rowe: Rural affairs and travel writer, Sheena Harvey: BBC Wildlife editor, Fergus Collins: BBC Countryfile Magazine editor, Miranda Krestovnikoff: Radio and TV presenter and RSPB president.
Voting is now open until Monday 5th March, so check out each of the nominees and pick your favourite! We already know ours…
