The International Federation of Agricultural Journalists (IFAJ) has opened the application process for the 2019 IFAJ/Alltech Young Leaders Award. Each of IFAJ’s 50 member guilds may submit one nominee for the prestigious award, which recognizes outstanding young journalists who demonstrate great potential to become leaders in the agricultural journalism industry.
Ten young journalists—age 35 or younger by December 31, 2018—are selected by an international jury for the prize, which includes a 1,000-Euro stipend to attend the 2019 IFAJ Congress in Minnesota, USA, in July. The Young Leaders also participate in a Boot Camp in the days prior to Congress, which includes farm visits in Minnesota as well as professional development and networking workshops.
Application deadline is Feb 8, 2019. For more information, click here.
