The highly anticipated Enterprise Ireland Innovation Arena Awards winners will be revealed following a summer of stiff competition as ground-breaking agri-related products and cutting edge innovations from Irish companies have battled it out for a cash fund of €10,000, this year’s competition was moved fully online due to the cancellation of the event as a result of Covid-19 pandemic restrictions.

 

On Wednesday ‘The Most Appropriately Dressed Competitions’ will take place as usual, albeit digitally this year, with amazing prizes on offer for the winners. 

 

The ‘Most Appropriately Dressed Lady’ will win a luxurious weekend away for two in the exclusive Wineport Lodge Hotel.  The ‘Most Appropriately Dressed Gent’ will win a €250 voucher for Detail Menswear, which can be redeemed online or in-store. To be in with a chance to win just simply take a picture of what you would have worn to ‘Ploughing’ on the day and include a sign with #Ploughing2020’, remember it would have been outdoors, in Ireland, in the Autumn so dress for the weather!

NPA’s Ploughing Organiser Anna Marie McHugh said: "Although it is disappointing that ‘Ploughing’ in its traditional sense isn’t going ahead due to the pandemic.  We expect to have a very exciting few days digitally, including many memories from over the years to get involved simply use #Ploughing2020 and follow our social media channels.”
