Winners 2014

Cassie Hough from Australia won the first place in the 2014 IFAJ-Rabobank Digital Media Award with her story ‘Droving south to greener pastures’, which was published by ABC Rural in September 2013. The judges described this as ”an epic story of droving thousands of cattle across half a continent over many months, from drought affected Queensland to lusher country in southern New South Wales. Cassie Hough used all elements to tell this story, including evocative photos, face-to-face audio interviews, text and a Youtube video collaboration”. The judges said that this is an excellent example of sophisticated story telling in the digital medium, which produces a rich experience for audience.

Second prize went to Elise Brown from the US for the story ‘Strength in numbers: Mixing a cover crop cocktail’ and featuring a profile of Larry Bonnell and his trialling of cover crops.

The team Gregg Hillyer, Jim Patricio, John Buckner and Charles Johnson from the US won the third prize with their story ‘Facing a food cliff’.


The winner of the IFAJ-Rabobank Digital Media Award was presented a certificate, a cash prize of 1,000 Euro and a special award. The runner-up received a certificate and a cash prize of 500 Euro. These prizes are sponsored by Rabobank.
