The Golden Apple Award

"La Pomme d'Or" or "The Golden Apple" is the FIJET equivalent of the Oscar, established in 1970. This award for excellence is presented each year to an organization, country, city, or person in recognition of superior efforts in promoting and raising the level of tourism.[3]

FIJET Academy

The FIJET Young Journalists Program provides an opportunity for young journalists to work with experienced tourism journalists and visit some tourism resorts.

The program includes seminars, workshops and hands-on learning experiences. Participating journalists are also given tours and opportunities to meet and talk with tourism professionals.

Participating students collaborate on writing and presenting an article or report (to be selected by the students) during the course of studies. Students are also required to write (for print publications) or produce (for radio and television) a report on the host country. x [4]
