#NorthernIreland and #Shropshire to benefit from Farmers Guardian Show Business 2015 competition #winners

THE winner of this year’s Show Business 2015 competition is Fermanagh County Show in Northern Ireland, with Burwarton Show, Shropshire, as runner-up.


Fermanagh, which will be held in Eniskillen, County Fermanagh, on August 4 and 5, is in its 179th year, and is the finale of the Northern Ireland show season. It wins a media partnership which includes a preview in Farmers Guardian, support on social media and advertising space. A Farmers Guardian journalist and photographer will also attend the show, producing a full show report.


Burwarton, as runner-up, will also receive social media support for its show on August 6.


Judges for the competition were retiring director of the Great Yorkshire Show Bill Cowling; agricultural communications specialist Jane Craigie; and Kathryn Jamieson, secretary of last year’s Show Business winner Stranraer Show.


Farmers Guardian editor Emma Penny said: "Judges commented on how hard the committees are working to put on a great event and to share the farming story with their communities. We had a tremendous number of entries – the six finalists are doing a fantastic job, and had galvanised their communities to vote. Congratulations to Fermanagh and Burwarton, and we look forward to working with both this summer."
