Sponsored by Sponsored by ICL and Syngenta, and supported by BASIS, the awards invite entries in three categories:

The three category finalists will be invited to the Amenity Forum Conference in October, where the three category winners will be announced. Each category winner will receive a framed certificate and a trophy from the sponsors, and thanks to support from BASIS Registration, they will also be offered a place on the BASIS Foundation Award in Amenity Horticulture, along with the examination fee.
The overall winner will be announced at the BIGGA BTME event next January and will have the choice of three fantastic prizes, including a trip to a world-leading US turf or amenity show, or £2000 worth of products.
