The EIT Food Journalism Award in Agrifood Innovation and Sustainability, that celebrates it's fifth anniversary in Spain, aims is to recognise the best journalistic work related to the agrifood sector. In Italy it will be the 4th year that EIT Food organises this award, and in Portugal, the 3rd. This year, as a new feature, the prizes amount has been changed: 1,500 euros for the winning entry, 1,000 euros for the runner-up and 500 euros for the third.

The deadline for submitting entries has already opened in the three countries. Entries are accepted in print (paper or digital), radio, podcast and television published between 1 September 2022 and 31 August 2023. The deadline for submissions is 15 September.


Each journalist can submit a maximum of three works, and a wide range of topics are accepted: reports related to healthy and affordable food, sustainability in agrifood, food innovation, education and food, consumer-oriented food, food entrepreneurship, inter-company collaboration, the economic importance of this sector and digitalisation in agrifood.

The awards are organised by EIT Food, the largest European innovation community in the agrifood sector, and are supported by different partners: in Spain, the Spanish Association of Agrifood Journalists (APAE) and the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC); in Portugal Sindicato dos Jornalistas and Crédito Agrícola; and, in Italy the Unione Nazionale delle Associazioni Giornalisti (UNAGA). The awards will be presented later this year.

"We are very proud to celebrate the fifth anniversary of this initiative with which we seek to recognise the work done by communication professionals in the dissemination of sustainable and healthy consumption habits and consumer education. We are also very happy with the participation of journalists who, year after year, increasingly recognise the value of this award", said Miriam Sastre, Communications Director of EIT Food South.
