The Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation – ACP/EU (CTA), in collaboration with the Caribbean Council for Science and Technology (CCST), The Caribbean Agricultural Research and Development Institute (CARDI), The University of the West Indies (UWI), Columbus Communications Trinidad Limited (FLOW Trinidad) and the Trinidad & Tobago Film Company, launched the second Caribbean Science and Agriculture Film and Video Competition in October 2013. The main objective of this competition is to encourage the use of ICTs by young professionals in improving the environment for agricultural science and innovation in the Caribbean region.

CTA, CCST and partners are pleased to announce that we have received 36 videos from eight countries for the 2013/2014 Caribbean Science and Agriculture film and video competition "Adding Value to Local Foods".

The countdown has begun! The 36 teams have posted their videos to the competition's Facebook page and the public is invited to view and "like" their favourite videos. The closing date for the public voting is 18 August. There is a prize for the team whose film/video is viewed the most by the public and receives the most "likes".

The competition awards ceremony and workshop will be held in Port of Spain, Trinidad from 27th-29th August 2014.

The organizers wish to thank all those who assisted in the promotion of this competition. We are counting on your continued support as we go through the next paces of this project.
