Agricultural journalists from Africa and around the world can apply for a two-day training program in The Netherlands. The International Federation of Agricultural Journalists (IFAJ) and Corteva Agriscience, a division of the multinational chemical company DowDuPont, are welcoming applications for their ninth annual master class.

Working journalists will teach participants about best practices in journalism, press freedom, leadership development, and networking. The master class will include farm visits and reporting workshops as well as round-table discussions about issues facing agricultural journalists in the field.

An IFAJ panel will select participants based on their background in agricultural journalism, their interest in learning about agriculture, their potential as leaders in the industry, and geographic diversity. Participants must be able to communicate in English.

The master class will take place July 7-9, 2018, immediately before the 2018 IFAJ World Congress. Participants in the master class will also attend the IFAJ Congress.

The deadline to apply is March 30, 2018.
