THE Bright Leaf Awards, given to the most outstanding and relevant agriculture stories in print, radio, and television, is now accepting entries until September 10, 2014.
Bright Leaf held its roadshow last May 23 at Star Plaza, Dagupan City to promote the competition and encourage more entries.
Established in 2007, the award-giving body honors the best features on agricultural issues and best farming practices on environmental safety and crop sustainability.
In a statement, Didet Danguilan, project head of the Bright Leaf Awards, urged all local journalists to join the competition.
She remarked, “We want to highlight the stories that enlighten and inspire our countrymen. This is even more important now because of the recent typhoons and earthquakes that have greatly made an impact in the agriculture industry.”
