Fortnum & Mason Food & Drink Awards 2015

Voting is closed, the hamper winner will be announced on 18 April 2015

The annual Awards recognize excellence in writing and broadcasting on food and drink. An independent panel of judges led by Ewan Venters, CEO of Fortnum & Mason selects the winners from work published or broadcast in 2014.

One further category is chosen by the public. Everyone who places a vote for the TV Personality of the Year 2015 will be entered into a free prize draw to win an iconic Fortnum & Mason hamper worth £500. The competition closes on 18 April 2015.

The Awards will be presented by Claudia Winkleman on Thursday 21 May 2015, at our flagship store on Piccadilly. Full details of the winners will be listed here from 9pm on the night.

There have been a record number of entries this year, over 400 across 12 categories. It would appear that our appetite for food and drink is bigger than ever with such a diverse body of work from both the well- established and some exciting new voices.
