The Shortlist

We present the sauciest dishes of the North... But only one can take the title.

After 350 entries photographed and submitted by restaurants across the North, the 30 hottest creations shortlisted in each category await your vote! The 6 top ranking entries will go through to the finals to have their dish re-shot by the award-winning STM Photography to be picture perfect for the final judgement, where our expert panel of judges will crown the champion of the Food Porn Awards 2018.

Our advice? Vote for the dish that makes you want to lick the plate clean. Like more than one? Of course you do. Give them a vote too.

Voting closes on Monday 18th December.
