AGRIBUSINESS ON THE SPOTLIGHT
The 2014 Bright Leaf Agriculture Journalism Awards (BLAJA) is open for entries starting today. This annual competition for the finest reports and photos on the agribusiness sector is now on its eighth edition. It showcases the most outstanding and relevant agri-related stories in print, radio and television.
Due to my advocacy on agri-business reforms, I was invited to be part of the board of judges for the 2013 BLAJA competition. Last year’s major winners were veteran journalists Fermin Diaz and Teddy Molina, photojournalists David Leprozo Jr. and Mauricio Victa. Their rewards included cash prizes and a trip to Bali, Indonesia with members of the press. Only Filipino professionals with entries published or aired between Sept. 2, 2013 and Aug. 31, 2014 are eligible to join. For more information, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call (632) 697-8110. It’s time to harvest the cream of the crop!
