The last 12 months have been challenging for primary producers and the Kondinin Group and ABC Rural Australian Farmer of the Year Awards awards offer an opportunity to celebrate and applaud the outstanding achievements of individuals and families making a significant contribution to Australian agriculture.
Nominations close this Sunday, May 24 and can be completed online. The 2020 winners will be announced in in October.
Award winners will take part in a Leadership Program supported by the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources. This major prize, a one-day workshop aimed at leadership development within the agricultural industry, allows Award winners to develop their leadership capacity, grow industry networks and build their communication skills to represent the bright future of the industry.
