The Crawford Fund has joined with the Australian Council of Agricultural Journalists to launch a competition that aims to encourage working Australian journalists to investigate the important roles that agricultural research, training and rural development play in global food security.

The winning journalist will be provided with a Crawford Fund ‘seeing is believing’ visit to a developing country to view and report on Australian and international research and training underway with a focus on food security.

Entries are open for print, broadcast and internet-based reports by working journalists around food security within the 12 months prior to the closing date of Friday, 31 May. The winner will be announced by the end of July. Further details, including the application and judging process, are available at
