The Food We Want project is inviting young people to participate in the Media Contest which awards 3750 Euro. 

Dear Food We Want community,

In 2012 we have done our best to encourage public debate and information exchange on food related issues: we published more than 100 articles, we organized workshops in 4 European countries, we started a research on good agricultural practices in Sub-Saharan Africa in collaboration with the State University of Milan and we promoted the value of sustainable agriculture through social media and public events.

Now it is your turn to take a leading role in communicating the key function of food in building a more fair and sustainable future!

With the launch of the FWW Media Contest we want to offer a tangible support to young communication professionals eager to learn more about food production, consumption and distribution, and to support the cause of sustainable agriculture.


If you are between 18 and 26 years old you can win a paid internship or choose to attend a professional course in the communication sector of the maximum value of 3750 euro. The prize is not in cash: it is a sponsorship to help you in getting started with a career in the communication sector or to support your need for further studies.

To participate you just need to log in the Food We Want web site, visit the Media Contest page (, read the Terms of Reference and upload your work.

We will award the best post that will be written in response to one of the two outlines provided:
