2019 Permaculture Magazine Prize and the Youth in Permaculture Prize
The 2019 Permaculture Magazine Prize launches on 1st February this year! Once again we will be offering a total of £25,000 to our winners.
Entries are invited from anywhere in the world and the main prize of £10,000 will be awarded to a project who demonstrate best practice in permaculture design and implementation to create regenerative ecosystems, the alleviation of poverty and social change. There will also be four runners-up receiving £2,500 each.
In addition, we are delighted to be offering the Youth in Permaculture Prize (YiPP), in partnership with the Abundant Earth Foundation, to recognise and honour the extraordinary efforts of young people around the world who use permaculture to help regenerate the planet. It is open to anyone under 25 years of age. The Youth in Permaculture Prize consists of a winning prize of £3,000 and two runners-up prizes of £1,000 each.
For details of how to enter, the terms & conditions, and deadline dates please view: www.permaculture.co.uk and https://abundantearthfoundation.org for their respective application forms. Both prizes will be judges by two international panels of experts.
In 2018 over 150 projects from all over the world entered the main prize. The standard of applications was very high and the judges had a difficult job of choosing the five main winners.
PM98 featured the extraordinary work of the £10,000 main prize winners the Ghana Permaculture Institute and also one of the runners-up, Bentley Urban Farm, a place of refuge and fresh food in one of the poorest areas of the UK. In PM98 Abundant Earth also revealed the three YiPP winners, including Millicent Anyango who uses permaculture to feed orphans, schoolchildren and the homeless in Kenya.

PM NEEDS YOU! There are a few things we would like in the pages of PM that you can help with: • Let us know what permaculture means to you. Send words, a photo and if you have it a video short (one to three minutes) that we can include online to: firstname.lastname@example.org • Can you recommend PM to a local store? It could be a Health Food Store or a Coffee Shop. Let’s help permaculture reach more people. Contact email@example.com with suggestions and contact details • PM relies for the most part on a mix of articles from its readers and from established authors on permaculture and related subjects. If you would like to contribute for possible inclusion in a future issue of PM, please refer to our editorial and pictorial guidelines: www. permaculture.co.uk/submit_an_article • Could you view and share PM’s social media platforms for us today, it really does help: www.facebook.com/PermacultureMag www.instagram.com/permaculturemagazine www.pinterest.com/permaculturemag https://twitter.com/permacultureMag
