Award: Best communication product on sweetpotato
August 15 - August 31
The Sweetpotato for Profit and Health Initiative has announced that the ‘Excellence and Innovation in Sweetpotato: Communication for Change Award’ will take place for a second year in 2018.
The annual award was established last year with a generous endowment from Dr. Jan Low, a principle scientist at the International Potato Center and a recipient of the World Food Prize in 2016, to recognize the best sweetpotato communication product.
This year the prize will be awarded for the best communication product related to sweetpotato that was produced in 2017 (January-December), with the winner to receive an award of US$500. The award will be presented to the lead publisher and is intended to be split among the co-publishers.
The deadline to receive applications has been extended to 31 August, 2018. The winner will be announced during the SPHI annual meeting, to be held 24-27 September 2018 in Nairobi, Kenya.
