Historic agreement with RA&HS Education Foundation (Oct 2013)

RMSA has just signed a historic agreement with the Royal Agricultural & Horticultural Society of SA (RA&HS) Education Foundation. This three-year agreement provides financial support for a series of joint initiatives.

The RA&HS Education Foundation will support the awarding of a bursary during the 2014/15, 2015/16 and 2016/17 years for the professional development of young journalists who live in regional areas and report for country based newspapers or media outlets. The Young Rural & Regional Journalist Professional Development Award was initiated in the 2012/13 year and this new agreement guarantees that at least five young rural journalists will receive benefit from the initiative.

The other component of the RA&HS Education Foundation's renewed commitment to rural media is a guarantee of on-going support for RMSA's Best Royal Adelaide Show Story Award and the Best Royal Adelaide Show Photograph Award for 2014, 2015 and 2016.
