The International Potato Center is pleased to announce that the “Excellence and Innovation in Sweetpotato: Communication for Change Award” will take place for a sixth year in 2022. 

The annual award was established with a generous endowment from Dr Jan W Low, a recipient of the World Food Prize in 2016, to recognize the best sweetpotato communication product. 

This year the prize will be awarded for the best communication product produced in 2021 (between 1 January – 31 December).  

This year, two winners will be selected, each receiving an award of USD 500. The award will be presented to the lead publisher and is intended to be split among the co-publishers. 

The main criteria to assess submissions will be: originality, quality, appropriateness for key audiences, and the results of the communications product and/or its contribution towards the impact of your project, program or organization. 

The deadline to receive applications is Friday, November 11, 2022. The winner will be announced on Monday, December 5.
