IFAJ conducts contests for photography, broadcasting, and communicating about agricultural sustainability that are open to any AAEA member. The organization also awards the Star Prize for Writing, sponsored by John Deere, but member countries can only provide a single entry. The AAEA Awards contest coordinators select the writing winner that will advance to this.
