The Barilla Center for Food & Nutrition (BCFN) in collaboration with the Thomson Reuters Foundation is seeking applicants for its Food Sustainability Media Award with an aim to recognise the work of professional journalists and emerging talent from all over the world for excellence in reporting and communicating issues related to food security, sustainability, agriculture and nutrition.

Objectives

  • To raise awareness of today’s ‘food paradoxes’.

  • To foster strong media engagement through journalism training.
