The Guild does not issue a membership card but journalists needing identification as a media representative can apply for an IFAJ Press Card.
Issued by the International Federation of Agricultural Journalists (to which the Guild is affiliated), the IFAJ Press Card is recognised by agricultural institutes, governments, ministries, exhibitions, fairs and events all over the world. It costs €15 (plus bank transfer charges).
An order form is available from Guild secretary, Nikki Robertson, which must also be used to renew a card using the existing IFAJ membership number.
In both cases, a digital id photograph is required in .jpg format and preferably sized 20mm x 30mm. It must be in colors RGB (not CMYK) and to 300 dpi resolution. The image file should be titled with the name of the person applying: surname_firstname.jpg.
