New video competition to feature at NSA Sheep Event 2014


Entries are now open for an exciting new video competition which will culminate at this year’s NSA Sheep Event, held on Wednesday 30 July 2014 at The Three Counties Showground, Malvern.

The competition is looking to find the video that best promotes a career in sheep farming, with a prize fund of £700 up for grabs.

Closely linked to the overall event theme of ‘securing the future of the UK sheep industry’, the NSA is hoping the winning videos will encourage new entrants into the sector.

Videos will be shortlisted and the top eight will go on to be professionally edited by Farmers Guardian, NSA Sheep Event Media Partner, to create a short advert which will be hosted online for people to vote for their favourite. The favourites from the online vote will have their videos aired on large screens at the NSA event.

“Living and working in the countryside is incredibly rewarding, producing top quality lamb for British and international consumers, so this is a chance for sheep farmers to shout about it and encourage youngsters to consider it as a career. Show off how beautiful your corner of the UK is, how proud you are of your stock and why there are enough good things about your job to outweigh the days when it just never stops raining!” says Joanne Briggs, NSA Communications Manager.
