Addy Rossi, IFAJ Secretary General

Once again, IFAJ invites all its guilds to participate in the IFAJ Star Prize.

On January 10, 2023, registration will open so that your members’ work can be chosen among the best in the world. IFAJ brings together more than 5,000 agricultural journalists from 60 countries on 5 continents, and this is a great opportunity.

Don’t waste time, start preparing your application. Please submit your application before February 28, 2023.

All the works entered will receive technical feedback from our judges, enriching the professional development of each and every one of the colleagues who participate in the contest.

Each IFAJ member guild can enter a work, published in 2022, in each of the following IFAJ Star Prize competitions:


  • Print
  • Broadcast Audio
  • Broadcast Video
  • Digital Media
  • Photography (open to individual members!)

Do you need translation? No problem. You can translate your guild entries into English for judging or ask us to do it for you. If possible, provide entries that require translation as soon as possible to allow time for translation and review before submitting the package to the judges.

You will find the rules and registration forms on the IFAJ website or by clicking here.
