Best culinary Destination Showcase

the judging Criteria

This category looks at the success of your destination’s culinary brand and awareness during the time of the pandemic. While no or few tourists could visit your area, we will assess how your destination has stayed top of mind as a food lover’s dream! This could be done through marketing campaigns, blogging, writing,  social media, online experiences, events, and any other way your destination has showcased its culinary assets since the start of the pandemic. How have you stayed relevant in your community and continued to tell your stories to potential visitors?
