Talamh Awards 2018

The Irish Smart Agriculture Awards

Talamh Awards 2018 is the new annual smart agriculture and rural awards scheme launched in partnership with the RDS and designed to recognise the success, tenacity and dedication of the Irish agriculture and rural sector as a key contributor to the Irish economy.  

The Awards are structured around the main areas of Irish agriculture and rural enterprise, the key focal point being three distinct strands of sustainability — environmental sustainability, commercial sustainability and community sustainability. Entries will have to demonstrate initiatives, innovations and developments that contribute to all three strands of this criteria.

The Awards are open to agricultural businesses and rural-based enterprises of all sizes and types across the island of Ireland and are free to enter. Entries will be judged on merit, regardless of company size, and according to these key criteria:

  • Successful and sustainable business
  • Strength and ambition of ideas
  • Innovative concepts and approaches
  • Courage, strategy and determination
  • Positive engagement benefiting the sector

A distinguished and experienced panel of agricultural and rural experts will assess all entries submitted via an online process and thereafter visit and interview the shortlisted finalists.
