"We think there are some fantastic food bloggers across the country and it's time that they were recognized and supported for their efforts," says CFBA co-founder and veteran food blogger Sheryl Kirby. "Our hope is that through these awards, we will find Canada's best online food writers, and that by presenting them with awards to acknowledge their work, this will set a standard of excellence to which food bloggers from coast to coast will aspire."
Food lovers and blog readers alike are invited to visit canadianfoodblogawards.com to nominate their favourite food and drink blogs from across Canada in sixteen categories including Best Writing, Best Photography, Best Professional Blog, Best Seasonal/Local Blog and Best Baking and Dessert Blog.
Nominations will remain open until December 21st, after which a shortlist will be created for each category, and given to a judges' panel to select the winners. The panel will consist of a veritable who's who of Canada’s food and drink scene, including chefs, food writers, newspaper and magazine columnists, and industry experts. The list of judges, which continues to grow as more are confirmed, is available on the CFBA website.
In addition, there will be a special "People’s Choice" award for the overall Best Canadian Food Blog, which will be selected and awarded based on a public vote.
Judging and voting will take place January 1st to 15th, and the winners in all categories will be announced on January 31st, 2011.
