North West eateries urged to enter the Food Porn Awards as expert judging line up announced

FOLLOWING its launch last month, eateries from across the North West have just a few weeks left to enter this yearís Food Porn Awards.

Celebrating the regionís best looking food, the awards close for entries, on 13 November 2016, with restaurants, bars, pubs and eateries encouraged to submit images of their most tantalising dishes to be in with a chance of winning the coveted 2017 award.

Online submissions have already started pouring in from across the region since entries opened and an expert judging panel has been appointed, which will have the challenging task of selecting 12 finalists, as well as the final winner.

The confirmed line up includes Maria Bracken, editor of leading industry publication, Eat Out, Jo Cooksey, editor of North West food and drink website, Taste Today, and acclaimed journalist, Renate Ruge. They will be joined by three of the judges involved in last yearís hugely successful launch, Professor Stewart Morell from Manchester Metropolitan University, Robert Gong, Food Development Chef at All About Food, and Oliver Zebedee-Howard, Owner and Managing Director of specialist food creative agency, Shoot the Moon.

With decades of experience in the sector between them, the panel will come together to select an initial shortlist of 12 entries from restaurants, bars, pubs and eateries across the North West, which have been submitting images of their most mouth watering dishes over the past month with a hope of scooping the acclaimed award. The finalists will then move through to the live cook off round, working with the curators of the Food Porn Awards, STM Photography, to capture images of their dishes before the entries are revealed and the judges make their final decisions.

The inaugural Food Porn Awards took place last year and following on from its success, have returned in its search to find the regionís finest culinary delights. This year, the awards are also welcoming entries from Yorkshire and Cumbria, with the final winner announced at the Northern Restaurant and Bar Show in March 2017.

Phil Marshall, STM managing director and curator of the Food Porn Awards, said:- "We are delighted to welcome back three of the judges from last year and very much looking forward to Maria, Jo and Renate joining the team. The quality of entries we received last year was outstanding and judging by the entries weíve already received, this year is on course to be even better. Iíve no doubt that the panel of experts we have on board will be ideally placed to select a worthy winner."

Sponsors and partners for this yearís awards include catering equipment supplier, Stephensons; specialist food photographers, STM Photography; social media agency, STM Social; PR agency, Refresh PR; and video production company, WhiteNoise Media.
