Stacey Moore was named best creative business at the north regional finals of the Rural Business Awards in partnership with Amazon which were held at Newcastle University.

Following the impressive achievement at the regional final, Stacey Moore Ltd will now go on to represent the region at the national final in February 2020.

Stacey is one of Yorkshire’s best selling coloured pencil artists, specialising in fine art drawings of British Wildlife and farm animals.

In spring 2016 she pursued her dreams and opened up The Stacey Moore Gallery in her hometown.

Her original drawings and Limited Edition prints are now highly sought after by animal lovers across the world.

Stacey said: “I was absolutely thrilled when I found out I had won ‘Best Creative business’ in the North at the rural awards — it’s great to see my small business been recognised nationally and shining a spot light on The Dales.”

Now in its fifth year, the Rural Business Awards is the only UK-wide programme dedicated to showcasing the success of rural businesses. It is run in partnership with Amazon.

“I’d like to congratulate all the businesses shortlisted and wish Stacey Moore the best of luck ahead of the national final in February.” said Doug Gurr Amazon UK Country Manager

Awards co-founder Jemma Clifford said: “Anna and I are so proud to be hosting the fourth annual Rural Business Awards together with Amazon.

“When we started the Awards we wanted to shine a much-needed light on successful rural firms but the success of the RBAs is beyond what we ever imagined.

“We were blown away with the diversity of our entries this year so winning any of the categories is an extraordinary achievement – hearty congratulations to Stacey Moore Ltd and all the other finalists.”


  1. Well done Stacey, you can be rightly proud of yourself and your achievements. We have two of your fabulous prints and love them – friends do too.

    Good luck for the national finals in February. John & Sue (Leyburn)
