Africa Food Prize 2017- Call for Nominations

The Africa Food Prize is the preeminent award recognizing an outstanding individual or institution that is leading the effort to change the reality of farming in Africa-from a struggle to survive to a business that thrives.

The US $100,000 prize celebrates Africans who are taking control of Africa’s agriculture agenda. It puts a spotlight on bold initiatives and technical innovations that can be replicated across the continent to create a new era of sustainable food security and economic opportunity for all Africans.

Nominations for the Africa Food Prize 2017 open on Monday 06 March 2017 and run until Monday 05 June 2017. The 2017 winner will be awarded at a high-profile gala dinner in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire at the African Green Revolution Forum (AGRF) in September 2017 by Former President of Nigeria, H.E. President Olusegun Obasanjo, Chair of the Africa Food Prize Committee.
