Request for Proposals: Video Production for AWARD@10
African Women in Agricultural Research and Development (AWARD) works toward inclusive, agriculture-driven prosperity for Africa by strengthening the production and dissemination of more gender-responsive agricultural research and innovation. We invest in African scientists, research institutions, and agribusinesses so that they can deliver agricultural innovations that better respond to the needs and priorities of a diversity of women and men across Africa’s agricultural value chains.
2018 marks a decade since the inception of AWARD. In the ten years since our founding, we have, through our flagship initiative- the AWARD Fellowship, strengthened the science, leadership, and mentoring skills of 1,158 scientists from 16 African countries. Out of these, 465 are outstanding women scientists who have benefited as AWARD Fellows and who embody the full potential of the innovative career development program.
As we celebrate a decade of huge investments in building a critical mass of capable, confident, and influential women scientists available to lead critical advances and innovations for the agricultural sector, we want to highlight the tremendous impact this initiative has had not just on the individual scientists, but also on the agricultural research and development landscape in Africa.
For this purpose, AWARD requires the services of a Video Producer to produce and deliver a video (five to ten minutes long) featuring four AWARD Fellows and communities in four countries, to highlight the impact of its initiatives.
The video, including scenes of landscapes, farming communities, markets, research laboratories, interviews with AWARD Fellows etc., should communicate AWARD’s interventions in agricultural research and development.
