In cooperation with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), IAMCR is offering three awards of 2,700 USD to authors of papers that advance our understanding of applications of Rural Communication Services (RCS), particularly in the areas of agriculture, family farming, natural resource management, climate change adaptation, food security, and disaster risk reduction and management.

To be eligible for the award, you must be a current (2024) member of IAMCR.

Submitted research must demonstrate how it will contribute to our understanding of rural communication, RCS, and the application of these in Africa, Asia, or Latin America.

The 2,700 USD is to be used to defray the costs of presenting the work at a special panel at IAMCR’s 2024 conference. The selected papers will be published in a FAO/IAMCR publication.

Interested authors must submit abstracts of their papers by the 7 February 2024 deadline, indicating that they wish to be considered for the FAO/IAMCR Award in step 5 of the submission process, “Topics”. Authors of selected abstracts will be informed by 21 February 2024 and required to submit final papers by 21 April 2024. The FAO/IAMCR Award selection committee will evaluate the eligible papers and announce the winners no later than 7 May 2024.
