A new journalism award designed to recognise the importance of innovation and technology in supporting sustainability and modern regenerative production systems and sponsored by the Ministry for Primary Industries has been introduced by the New Zealand Guild of Agricultural Journalists and Communicators this year.
The Guild has been running awards for journalists for over 30 years to encourage and recognise excellence in agricultural journalism and the important role it plays in shaping our understanding of agriculture – the backbone of this country.
As well as the highly coveted Ministry for Primary Industries Rongo Award for Excellence in Agricultural Journalism entries are now open for all categories in this year's competition:
The closing date for all awards is 5pm on Sunday 3 October. The winners will be announced at the Awards Night in Wellington on Friday 26 November.
All awards criteria and more information can be found on the NZGAJC website: www.nzgajc.org.nz/2021-awards
