Entries for the Marketing Derby Food and Drink Awards 2024 are now open!

Designed to shine a light on Derby’s brilliant food and drink businesses, the awards aim to recognise and celebrate the very best places to eat and drink across the city.

Nominations are now being accepted for the awards, which will culminate in a vibrant ceremony at The Chocolate Factory on Monday 7 October.

Last year, the awards attracted a record 5,000-plus nominations – and now nominations are being invited for this year’s awards.

John Forkin, managing director of Marketing Derby, said: “We are delighted to launch the Marketing Derby Food and Drink Awards 2024.

“The awards ceremony itself has become a highly anticipated fixture in the business calendar.

“Last year, the awards attracted an incredible 5,000-plus nominations, which demonstrates the appetite there is for these awards – as well as good food!

“We are looking forward to celebrating the achievements of our very best food and drink businesses – and would urge everyone to get their nominations in.”

Featuring 11 categories, the awards have been designed to allow as many food and drink businesses as possible to enter.

This year’s categories include Best Café, Best Pub, Best Bar and Best Country Pub / Restaurant – and, course, Restaurant of the Year.

There is a new category for this year – Best Curry – and a new award – the Innovation Award, the winner of which will be chosen by Marketing Derby.

And an award will be presented on the night recognising Outstanding Achievement.

Last year, to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Marketing Derby Food and Drink Awards, a special Food and Drink Guide was produced.

Due to the success of the publication, a new, updated guide will be published, featuring all of the 2024 winners.

This will be distributed on the night of the awards and included with future copies of Marketing Derbys Innovate Magazine.

This year, the public, the business community and the food and drink outlets themselves are invited to make nominations.

Once the nomination period closes on Friday 26 July, judges will round them down to a shortlist of finalists, who will be announced in August.

The winners will then be revealed at the awards ceremony in October.
