Irish Good Choice! Quality Food Awards 2017 :: How To Enter

How To Enter

1) Categories

Firstly you will need to select the category that your product falls under. View all the categories here. You can enter whether you are the product's manufacturer or retailer. You are able to enter multiple products within one form. 
 
Remember the judging criteria when selecting your products: flavour; texture; aroma; ingredients list; value for money; innovation; packaging; presentation – does the product meet its stated aims in the market, and does it do it well?
 
It doesn't have to be a new product – just a really good one

2) Information Required

Once you have clicked on your product category within the Entry Form, you will be required to enter the following information to support your entry:
 
  • Product info - name, launch date, price, weight- Always tell us the price: value for money is an important part of the debate
  • Who it is manufactured for
  • List of ingredients-Send us products with clean ingredients declaration
  • Cooking instructions- Check that they are set out clearly
  • Details of ROI/NI listings (instore & online)
  • 100 word product description - to include product USPs and aims in the market place
  • *This description will be read out to the judges when they receive your product for tasting so please take care-– judges appreciate being told the “story” behind a product – especially if it has a strong message to communicate*
  • Upload a pack shot / photo of the product
  • If your product needs other ingredients added, such as baking kits, please make sure that this is clearly stated in the submission
  • Follow delivery instructions and deadlines carefully, and deliver products to the Dublin Institute of Technology on the dates specified.  We will normally ask for 8 samples.

3) Fees

All entries should be paid for before judging commences on 19th June 2017. Payment can be made by credit card or alternatively by invoice if you select this option.
 
All Small Producers eligible for a reduced rate should complete and submit the Small Producer Form before entering a category. They will be given a discount 'promo code' to use in the entry form.
 
You will receive confirmation via email as soon as your entry has been submitted, and in due course will receive details of where and when to send your products for judging in June.
