Veseys Seeds has won a bronze medal in an international catalogue competition. The company sends out more than one million seed catalogues every year.

The catalogue was entered in the 2001 Summit Creative Awards competition in Portland, Oregon.

It placed third in the catalogue/magazine category.

"Everybody's quite pleased about it," says Director of Sales and Marketing John Barrett. "If this was a sporting event, and some local team placed third in an international competition, it's a pretty big deal."

Veseys Seeds redesigned the catalogue for 2001.

The company says it will display the bronze trophy at its store in York.
