John Ralph Essay Competition

The topic for the 2015 John Ralph Essay Competition is: 
Australian agriculture should forget about the pursuit of productivity, and instead focus on premium markets.



The Novice category is open to persons 25 years of age or under, on Friday 18th of September 2015 (competition closing date).

The Australian Farm Institute established the John Ralph Essay Competition to stimulate discussion and debate on topics relevant to the agriculture sector, and to 
encourage students and the wider community to engage in issues strategically important to the future of the sector.

Any professors or lecturers interested in having their students participate are invited to include the competition topic in their students' assessment tasks, and to enter some 
or all of the resulting essays in the competition.

Professors and lecturers who have at least three students who enter the competition will be offered:
  •     One year’s free subscription to the Farm Policy Journal
  •     One hardcopy of an Institute research report of their choice.
The winner of the Open category will receive a cash prize of $5000 and the winner of the Novice category will receive a cash prize of $1000. 

Winners also receive one year's Institute membership (valued at $319) and complementary attendance at the Australian Agriculture Roundtable Conference.
