There are ten different categories in this year's BBC Food and Farming Awards which aims “to honour those who have done most to promote the cause of good food.”

A new category, The Pat Llewellyn New Talent Award is open for someone from the ages of 16 to 30 who is working hard to develop something new or campaign to change the way things are done in the world of food and farming. The BBC Food and Farming Awards are looking for people who are passionate, have innovative new ideas and are working hard to improve food or farming in the UK. They could be a campaigner, an innovator or a new master of their craft - anyone who is making us stop and think about how things could be done differently.

The BBC Future Food Award is for innovative and pioneering work that could influence how our food will be grown, distributed and sold in future. This award is for an ambitious and ground-breaking idea found within the food supply chain; from initiatives by national retailers and major food and drink manufacturers to new models being put into practice by farmers and producers. It could be work that deals with sustainability, access, health, energy or waste; any initiative which is scalable, commercially viable and applicable to food production and distribution in the UK.

People can nominate themselves or others and entries must be in by midnight on 18 February 2019.

Sustain was the winner of the Judge's Special Award at the BBC Food and Farming Awards in November 2005.
