Members of the Guild automatically become members of the International Federation of Agricultural Journalists and the European Network of Agricultural Journalists, giving them unique access to a global network of agricultural communicators.
Guild Members are eligible to attend the annual IFAJ Congress, as well as a host of overseas trips hosted by the IFAJ and ENAJ in Europe and further afield.
To receive information and details of available trips as soon as they become available, Guild members can sign up for the IFAJ newsletter and ENAJ newsletter. Guild members are also eligible to enter IFAJ awards and competitions.
The Guild doesn’t issue a membership card but journalists who need identification as a media representative can apply for an IFAJ Press Card.
Issued by the IFAJ, it 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 photograph is required in .jpg format, 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).
