Congratulations to all Semi-Finalist teams who worked hard to develop your Visions further during Refinement Phase! The Refinement Phase is closed and the Evaluation Round 2 has begun.
- For Semi-Finalist teams -
You will receive confirmation that your submission was received by June 3. We ask that you wait until that time to ask the Food System Vision Prize team about your submission.
- For everyone -
You are welcome and encouraged to check out the submitted Visions and share feedback, ask questions, and offer support to the innovators by commenting on individual submissions. Not sure where to start? Try looking at the Visions in the continent where you are located.
- What's Next? -
During this second Evaluation phase, the Food System Vision Prize team and expert Judges from around the world will be evaluating the refined Visions. Then, the week of August 3, 10 Vision Prize Finalists will be announced. In September 2020, these Finalists will be invited to progress to a 3-month virtual Accelerator where teams will continue to build their Visions. Even as the Accelerator focuses on the 10 finalists, however, The Rockefeller Foundation will be announcing additional ways to advance the visibility and feasibility of all of your Visions. With the UN Food System Summit of 2021 beginning to take shape, we have our eyes focused on that event as a way to catapult Visions onto the global stage.
Stay tuned for more opportunities and announcements in the coming weeks and months.Should urgent questions arise, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
