AGCO Corp/Massey Ferguson Journalism Awards 2018 for Journalists in South and Central America

AGCO Corp/Massey Ferguson Journalism Awards 2018 for Journalists in South and Central America

Deadline: July 2, 2018

Applications are invited for the AGCO Corp/Massey Ferguson Journalism Awards 2018. The competition aims to encourage, recognize and value the work of journalists in Brazil and countries in South and Central America and the Caribbean, who promote, through media reports, topics related to the agribusiness, involving aspects such as the sector’s production, technology, and development, as well as topics that interfere directly or indirectly in the economic development.

The Journalism Award is the result of many exciting partnerships: of those who perform, of those who create conditions for the award to happen, and of those who tell the history of the development of the country. Created in 2001, the award was introduced to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Massey Ferguson in Brazil and highlight the talent and dedication of the professionals who register through the media as well as the history of Brazilian agriculture and the development of the rural sector every day.

Cost

  • The award event will take place in September in Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul. AGCO do Brasil and Massey Ferguson will pay for all the costs resulting from airplane tickets and hotel fees for the finalists during the award ceremony.
