Restaurant Entries
When completing your Restaurant Nomination Form here are some things to remember:

1. Restaurants are only eligible to enter one category; however they can also enter Breakfast Restaurant and/or People, Produce, Place Tourism Restaurant categories if the category definition is met. Please note that if entering the People, Produce, Place Tourism Restaurant award the additional entry form and criteria must be completed and submitted at time of entry to be deemed acceptable.
2. For venues that only offer a prix-fixe menu, the entry fee will be the cost for two diners to order the prix-fixe menu with matched wines and coffee.
3. Multi Outlet Venues – Where a venue has multiple outlets (eg in a Hotel, Club or Convention Centre) the venue may enter multiple outlets into the Restaurant & Catering awards if all individual outlets are members of the Association.
4. Categories will be split into sub-categories only if there are sufficient entrants.
5. Categories with an asterisk (*) are National Award categories. The entrant with the highest score from the master category and its sub-categories will move forward to compete at the National Awards. Please note that although you may win the master category this does not give you automatic entry into the National Awards.
6. Where there is only one entrant in a category, that entrant will not be eligible to win that category but can be awarded an Honourable Mention. In this instance the entrant can choose to: (a) remain the sole entrant of that category; (b) move to another category with multiple entrants (providing eligibility criteria can be met); or (c) withdraw from the Awards (refer to refund policy). It is the responsibility of the entrant to check their category and contact Restaurant & Catering if they wish to move or withdraw.
7. Refer to the Terms & Conditions of Entry for further details on the Restaurant Awards.

Catering Entries

  4. Payment for entry must be received before entry can be confirmed

Additional Restaurant and Catering Awards
There are a number of other awards that establishments can enter under the Awards for Excellence banner. Below is a list of the Awards on offer as well as the nomination forms and information sheets for each.

People, Produce, Place Tourism Restaurant
This category is open to establishments offering a tourism experience or servicing the tourism industry. It must be seen in the public eye to be a draw-card to a particular destination or event. It is not a food award but does recognise a significant contribution to tourism through the provision of food and beverage.
