Wel­come to the BBC Coun­try­file Mag­a­zine Awards 2018. Here we re­veal the nom­i­nees for our coun­try­side awards this year. Our panel of ex­pert judges scru­ti­nised all the sug­ges­tions from read­ers and de­lib­er­ated for hours to se­lect five out­stand­ing con­tenders in each cat­e­gory. Huge con­grat­u­la­tions to our nom­i­nees, it is a real achieve­ment to make it onto the short­list as the com­pe­ti­tion was stiff. Now it is up to the coun­try­side-lov­ing pub­lic to de­cide the fi­nal win­ner. Good luck to ev­ery­one!
