Your web TV, Agribusiness TV, has been nominated for the 2017 WSIS Project Prizes in the media category (16). You can vote for the project until 30 April 2017!
The WSIS (World Summit on the Information Society) Prizes is a unique international contest developed in response to requests from the WSIS stakeholders to create an effective mechanism to evaluate and recognise individuals and different organisations for outstanding success in implementing development oriented strategies that leverage the power of ICTs as an enabler of the development. The winners in each category will be selected among the five (5) most voted projects. Winner announcement will be done at the WSIS Summit 2017, which will take place in June 2017 in Switzerland.
Launched since May 2016, Agribusiness TV is the first web TV dedicated to African youth who innovate and succeed in agriculture. Agribusiness TV wants to show a positive image of agriculture by documenting success stories, innovations and lessons learned from youth initiatives in agricultural entrepreneurship. And it works. In just eleven months, over 50 videos have been produced, which have been viewed over 2 million views.
It is an honour for Agribusiness TV to be nominated for this prestigious prize, and we are inviting the public to vote for us, if in their opinion, the project is making an impact in making agriculture attractive to youth by showing innovations and success stories along the value chain.
