How the Awards Work…

The Foodies – NZ Food Media Awards are awarded by Food Writers NZ. The Awards recognise outstanding work in all areas of food communication. The Foodies are proudly sponsored by Meadow Mushrooms.

The Awards will take place on the online judging platform – The Foodies.

  • Before you can submit an entry – you will be asked to ‘Register’ as a New User, where you will need to create a login and password.
  • You will need to use this login and password in order to SUBMIT AN ENTRY (look for the green button on the right-hand side).

The Awards will be judged in two rounds:

  1. All entries will be judged and scored by assigned expert judges (specific to each category) to determine the finalists.
  2. Once the finalists are announced, all Food Writers NZ members will have the opportunity to cast their votes on the finalists to determine their picks for the winners.

The Best Book Award will be judged by a panel of judges.

There are also two special awards which will be judged by the Senior Judges at their discretion, based on all entries received. These are Emerging Food Communicator and Food Communicator of the Year. These are at the senior judging panel’s discretion.

All winners will be at the ultimate discretion of the senior judging panel. No correspondence will be entered into.

The winners will be announced at an Awards event in late August – details TBC.
