Massey Ferguson assembled some of the finest journalists in Brazil for a night of awards last month. In its 10th edition, the Massey Ferguson Journalists Award has recognized some of the best work on agricultural journalism in television, newspapers, magazines and internet. This year, Massey Ferguson included a category for students.
The awards night united all the nineteen finalists on the last 27th of October in Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul state. Since 2001, Massey Ferguson received more than 1500 subscriptions to the prize. There were around 500 journalists in the combined years trying to win the trophy.
Also during the night event, Senior Vice President and General Manager for AGCO South America, Andre Carioba delivered AGCO’s Agricultural Journalism Highlight Award. This trophy is annually given to a tv show, newspaper, journalist or entity and is pointed solely by the jury members. In 2011, the journalists forming the jury decided to conceive the award do Bandeirantes communications group for its continuous work covering the agribusiness in Brazil. Congratulations!
