The categories for this year’s Country Craft Competition have been announced – and they have a Commonwealth themed twist.

Can your chutney woo the judges? Are you a photography aficionado? Are your Roses worthy of a medal? And will your Tin Foil Crown with Jewels look like something from a Tiffany and Co. collection?
