Tell us who you think should win this year's prestigious awards.
Norfolk has so much to be proud of – so let’s reward those people who are doing so much for the county, by finding fitting winners for this year’s EDP Norfolk Food and Drink Awards, in association with East of England Co-op, and part of Norfolk Food & Drink Ltd.
This is the time when you – readers of the EDP Norfolk magazine and the Eastern Daily Press newspaper – can really show your support for your favourites. The awards begin with you and your nominations – our readers have great taste and know the county’s food and drinks offering so well, so it is over to you to share your first-hand knowledge of the people, places and products that are at the top of their game this year.
It is also the perfect opportunity for those working in the county’s food and hospitality industries to sing their own praises too. If you are proud of what your business has achieved in the past year and think it deserves to be recognised, now’s the time to stand up and be counted – we welcome self-nominations, so make sure you, your business and your talented staff don’t miss out on the chance to walk away with one of the prestigious awards.
Each category has been sponsored by a respected name in the county’s food, drink and hospitality industry or in a business that supports this important sector of our economy. Their support helps to give these awards such value and respect from within the industry as well as from the customers whose nominations are so important.
Your nominations go through to our special panel of expects and independent judges, who then search out those nominees who have really made an impact. The finalists will be announced in the late summer and be invited to a gala awards ceremony at the Norfolk Showground in September, when this year’s worthy winners will be revealed.
New this year, we will also be opening up two categories for public vote – Norfolk’s Best Restaurant and Norfolk’s Best Pub – we can’t wait to see who lifts these trophies.
So let us know your favourites now and give them the chance to become winners in this year’s wonderful awards.
