Win a place at the IFAJ Congress 2013 in Argentina

Deadline - Friday, September 7


Argentina is to host the annual congress of the International Federation of Agricultural Journalists (IFAJ) in 2013.

This is the first time the IFAJ congress has visited a Latin American country and it is already looking like an exciting event, given Argentina's place in the world of agriculture and its long association with beef and wine. The country has trebled its agricultural output over the past 30 years and the congress offers a rare chance to see the country in all its glory.

IFAJ Congress 2013It is being held from September 1-5, 2013, starting in Buenos Aires before moving out across the country with a splendid variety of post-congress tours covering all points north, south, east and west.

The British Guild is fortunate to have several draw tickets available which could yield a free place on the congress for a lucky member. They were given away by the Argentinean organisers at the IFAJ's recent gathering in Sweden.

Members or Friends of the Guild who would like a draw ticket, the details of which must be registered on the Argentine congress website, should contact the Guild's IFAJ executive representative Joe Watson. The prize of free congress registration includes all accommodation, meals and transport after arrival at the congress venue; travel and other costs incurred getting to and from the venue remain the responsibility of the winner.

The deadline for draw ticket applications is Friday, September 7 - the end of next week. A ballot will be held if there are more applications than the limited number of draw tickets available to ensure fair distribution.

More information is available on the IFAJ Congress 2013 website and a lively promotional video can be seen here.
