The food innovation field seeks a more sustainable, healthy and reliable system, and collaboration with consumers is one of the key points of the process. Dissemination and awareness of large audiences is essential, and the media constitute the access to this broad group. For this reason, EIT Food wants to reward journalism professionals in different Southern countries, starting in Spain in 2019 and broadening towards Italy in 2020 and Portugal in 2021.
The EIT Food Journalism Award has a financial prize of € 1,500 for first place and € 700 for second. The Award represents support for the journalist's activity, a stimulus for other new actions, and a boost for their public image as a benchmark for good journalistic practices.
