Mart's the Heart Awards 2019: Could you be one of this year's winners?

Auctions are essential to the success and well-being of any livestock farm business.

 

Auctioneers are, in many ways, at the forefront of the livestock industry.

 

Their purpose is to bring farmers together and to achieve the best price for whatever they are selling.

 

This year, the Mart’s the Heart Awards are back, with the aim of celebrating this vital sector of British agriculture.

 

This is your opportunity to shout about those within the industry who you feel deserve special recognition.

 

The Mart’s the Heart Awards were launched in 2015 and the campaign proved to be an outstanding success and was incredibly well received.

Last year, the awards generated more than 400 nominations and more than 9,000 votes were cast for the shortlisted auctioneers and marts.

 

The closing date for entries is July 12. We cannot wait to celebrate the winners for the following awards: Lifetime Achievement, Auctioneer of the Year, New Auctioneer of the Year and Auction Cafe of the Year.

 

The awards will be presented at the British Farming Awards in October. We hope you will help us identify and reward individuals and cafes which are doing a great job for the industry.

HOW TO NOMINATE

 

We welcome as many nominations as possible. Whether you are a regular, new or occasional visitor to the mart, we want to know who you feel has made a difference.

 

We also invite auctioneers and cafes to get involved and nominate themselves.

 

Make sure to let us know as much as possible, as this gives us a compelling case for making sure the most deserving nominees make the shortlist of finalists.

 

You can nominate here: www.martstheheart.com

AUCTIONEER OF THE YEAR AWARD

THE search is on for a driven, progressive auctioneer. It should be someone who is pushing their own business, and that of their farming clients, forward.

 

The main aim of this award is to reward someone who epitomises today’s progressive auctioneer, who has made a positive impact and puts something back into the market.

 

Finalists will be asked to produce a personal summary, including:

 

● Examples of how they impact the rural community positively, by going above and beyond expectations

 

● Examples of how they are seen as trusted and respected statesmen for the industry, backed up by testimonials from farmers and other relevant people

 

● Evidence of drive and progressive auctioneers, based on what they are putting back into the agricultural marketplace

 

● Evidence of how they have been innovative – how they have built up a market, merged markets, raised profiles of breeds through new sales, overcome adversity

 

● Key auctioneering skills are expected, along with being driven, approachable, knowledgeable and friendly; a short video of them in action is required

 

A hi-res photo will need to be provided, plus a 120-word summary which will appear in the shortlist announcement published in print and online.

LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD

THIS award aims to recognise a dedicated and enthusiastic character who has worked in the industry for a minimum of 30 years.

 

This person will have played a pivotal role in the live market system, by championing the needs of fellow farmers, being an inspiration, encourager and role model to others.

 

The Lifetime Achievement Award winner will be someone who has truly made a positive difference to the lives of others, has supported communities, spearheaded changes over the years and promoted the industry positively and with passion.

NEW AUCTIONEER OF THE YEAR AWARD

THIS award aims to identify and reward trainee and newly qualified auctioneers (within three years of qualifying), based on skills, attitude and contribution to the agricultural community.

 

The main aim is to reward someone who epitomises an innovative, progressive new entrant auctioneer who has a positive impact and is putting something back into the market.

 

Finalists will be asked to produce a personal summary, including:

 

● Examples of how they impact the rural community positively, by going above and beyond expectations

 

● Examples of how they are being seen as trusted and respected in the industry, backed up by testimonials from farmers and other relevant people

 

● Evidence of their drive, based on what they are putting back into the agricultural marketplace

 

● Evidence of how they have developed their skills and profile in the market and industry

 

● Key auctioneering skills are expected, along with being driven, approachable, knowledgeable and friendly; a short video of them in action is required

 

A hi-res photo will need to be provided, plus a 120-word summary which will appear in the shortlist announcement published in print and online.

AUCTION CAFE OF THE YEAR AWARD

WE are looking for the UK’s premier auction cafe – the centre of mart life.

 

It does not matter whether it is small or large, we are looking for a cafe which is a hub for the mart and produces quality food, using British products, at a reasonable price.

 

Whether it is a top cuppa or a great lunch, we are seeking nominations to identify and reward the UK’s best market cafe.

 

The winner will be selected by a combination of public votes and the feedback from a ‘secret eater’.

 

The main aim is to reward a cafe which is doing a fantastic job serving its customers with high quality food and drinks and creating a real mart community hub.

 

A hi-res photo will need to be provided, plus a 120-word summary which will appear in the shortlist announcement published in print and online.
