Open Farm Sunday 2015 Photography Competition

Simply visit our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/LEAFOpenFarmSunday) from the 7th – 21st June and share your picture with us.  You could capture the farmer, the animals, the activities, the landscape – we want to see what you think is the essence of a day out on a farm on Open Farm Sunday.

There are a number of prizes available including:

  • 1 x top prize of £100 Asda gift card
  • 10 x second place prizes of collectible toys from Britains Big Farm range
  • 25 x third place prizes of Shaun the Sheep The Movie DVDs

All remaining winners will be chosen by the LEAF Team.

More about the prizes

Thank you to Asda for donating the top prize of a £100 Asda gift card.

We have 10 x second prizes of collectible toys from Britains Big Farm range

Britains Big Farm range of licensed 1:16 scale is the brand of choice for budding young farmers aged from three years up.  Authentic models are made from high quality, durable plastic with realistic features.  Tough enough to take on any outdoor adventure, with free-rolling wheels and hard rubber tyres, the chunky tractors and connecting accessories, give junior farmers the chance to role play every element of the farming life, from ploughing and harvesting to breeding and raising livestock. And we've got a Big Farm John Deere 6210R Tractor up for grabs, along with either a Big Farm John Deere Baler, a Big Farm John Deere Hydra Spreader or a Big Farm John Deere 348 Baler.  Visit www.uk.tomy.com, become a fan at facebook.com/britainsfarmtoys and follow us at @TOMYToysUK. Prizes may vary.

We have 25 x third place prizes of Shaun the Sheep The Movie DVDs to be won

From Aardman, the creators of Wallace & Gromit and Chicken Run, comes the highly anticipated movie debut of Shaun the Sheep. When Shaun decides to take the day off and have some fun, he gets a little more action than he baa-rgained for! Shaun’s mischief accidentally causes the Farmer to be taken away from the farm, so it’s up to Shaun and the flock to travel to the Big City to rescue him. Will Shaun find the Farmer in the strange and unfamiliar world of the City before he’s lost forever?

Shaun the Sheep The Movie will be available on DVD, Blu-ray and Digital Download from June 1st and will come with a host of extras including character profiles and a look behind the scenes!
