Conference Media

We were very pleased to have organised significant media attention with national TV, radio and print coverage for the important issues covered at our Annual Conference “Weathering the ‘Perfect Storm”. An ongoing listing of the media coverage can be found here.

The event also attracted significant social media interest, with the conference hashtag #19cfconf trending at number 1 in Canberra during our Parliamentary Conference on 13 August. A digital report for the conference itself is here, and one for the lead up to the event is here.

During the conference we announced the winner of the 2019 Crawford Fund Food Security Journalism Award.

The hashtag for our 2019 conference was #19cfconf. You can continue to follow our social media activities @CrawfordFund.
