CTA (The Technical Center for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation ACP-EU) is holding its annual seminar from October 12-16, 2009. The theme of the seminar is the role media can play to enhance agricultural and rural development in ACP countries (Africa, the Caribbean, and the Pacific).
In advance of the seminar, CTA is holding a competition to recognize the best journalism on agricultural and rural development, and the best community communication project in support community development. Panos London is managing this competition on behalf of CTA.
The competition is open to professional and non-professional journalists, media houses, and community-level communication projects in ACP countries. There are two categories: journalism published or broadcast through print, radio, TV, or online outlets; and community-level communication projects (any medium).
Awards for each category include a two-week training, study, or research opportunity, as well as cash prizes ranging from 500-2,500 Euros (about 715-3,575 American dollars). For more details about the competition and information on how to apply, go to: http://www.panos.org.uk/?lid=28529 .
