2018 sees our 'Food Pornographers’ look to the whole of the North for the very first time. There will be two categories; Fine Dining and Casual Dining, with a winner selected from each.
Whether you're a restaurant, pub, bar or pop-up bistro; the Food Porn Awards™ are open to every chef, cook or caterer across the North of England. So, if you've ever had a dish described as heavenly, dangerously delicious or better than sex, upload an image of your culinary flair, where it will be put forward for judging by a select panel of industry experts.
Entry couldn't be simpler; just upload an image of your entry and complete a few details about your dish. Our judges will then shortlist thirty entrants from each category, who will be entered into our online public vote to decide the 12 finalists.
The top ranking six dishes from each category will become our 2018 finalists and will be visited to have their dish photographed by the professionals, before it goes to a second round of public voting and ultimately, a panel of expert judges will pick the winner for each category. For the first time, this year will include a People’s Choice Award, for the dish that ranks highest in the public voting round.
Winners will be announced at the Food Porn Awards™ exhibition, a celebration of the best-looking food in the North, which will be held in March 2018 at the Northern Restaurant & Bar Show.
It's free to enter the Food Porn Awards™ and entrants can submit more than one image per category. No professional marketing shots though, just an image that you have taken with your phone or camera.
