National Federation of Young Farmers' Clubs

Fun, Learning, and Achievement

#NYFW17 Photo Competition

This National Young Farmers’ Week (#NYFW17) we are hosting a massive photo competition and we want all our YFCs to get involved.

Judged by Chris Stark from BBC Radio 1 and NFYFC’s President Charlotte Smith, we are asking all our clubs to take a selfie in their club shirts that would encourage someone to join your club.

The judges want to see just how amazing our clubs are and will choose a winner based on the YFC they would most want to join after seeing your photos. 

Thanks to HOPS Recruitment, the winners will win a digital camera, with video functionality, for their YFC to help them promote events even more! 

Judges comments: 

NFYFC President Charlotte Smith said:

“I will be looking for some interesting ideas in the photos our YFCs enter to this competition! As I am starting to get out and about to meet more YFC members, I’ve realised that, despite all of you being part of the same Federation, each club is unique. It’s amazing to see all the different activities you host every week in your clubs and I can’t wait to see how you portray all of this in your photo entries. So phones - and even actual cameras - at the ready, to see if you can capture what your YFC is all about in just one picture!”



NFYFC Ambassador Chris Stark from BBC Radio 1 said:

“I'm really excited to see all the entries for the National Young Farmers' Week photo competition. You all know how much I love visiting and DJ’n for as many of the 631 Young Farmers’ Clubs as possible across England and Wales. It's fair to say if you've been to one of my gigs that I end up taking a lot of photos myself!! This sounds like a fun competition and I'm looking forward to seeing pictures that show me and the rest of the world what is great about being part of a YFC.”
