A documentary on The Gold in the Soil Awards will be aired on selected Ghanaian television stations to recognise and celebrate the social, economic, cultural and agricultural achievements of Ghanaian women. 


The event cast a spotlight on the nominated women farms and businesses, as it tells their story showcasing passion, drive, excitement, challenges, short- and long-term vision, in a way designed to inspire and mentor viewers.

The distinguished winners of the sectorial awards are nominated by the public and based on their verified performance and achievements, as recorded and shown in the video documentary, a jury of equally distinguished industry experts, led by the National Farmers and Fishermen Award Winners Association (NAFFAWA), select winning candidates based on consensus.
