BBC Countryfile Magazine Awards 2018 - send in your nominations

BBC Countryfile Magazine Awards 2018

This year, we are altering the format of the BBC Countryfile Magazine Awards 2018 to allow for even greater public participation. In other words, we need your help! We would like you to provide your suggestions for nominations in our 10 countryside categories, from National Park of the Year to Beach of the Year.

Once we have received your suggestions, an expert panel will whittle down the submissions to just five contenders per category. These nominees will then be put to the public vote early next year, with the winning contestant in each category claiming that title.

The 10 categories are:
Holiday Destination of the Year
Beach of the Year
Country Book of the Year
National Park of the Year
Country Pub of the Year
Garden of the Year
Landmark of the Year
Nature Reserve of the Year
Conservation Success of the Year
Reader Photo of the Year

All the categories are open to suggestions for candidates, with the exception of Reader Photo of the Year, which will feature all the winners of our Reader Photo of the Month. View the images here

Entries must by received 27 November
