IFAJ 2009 Texas

The Canadian Farm Writers' Federation annual meeting in Edmonton is just wrapping up and if attendees heard about anything these last few days, it was IFAJ - the International Federation of Agriculture Journalists.

It wasn't the only topic of discussion, but 18 CFWF members attended the IFAJ congress in Fort Worth, Texas last month. Many of us were at the CFWF meeting in Edmonton. As well IFAJ President Mike Wilson attended CFWF. So it was top of mind!

I attended as the recipient of the CFWF/Monsanto bursary. The $2,500 prize is awarded each year to a CFWF member who applies to CFWF -- independent judges review the application and use a point system to mark categories of the application.
