The Staff Canteen is launching a new, online hospitality industry awards. It has probably been the toughest year which hospitality has faced and we here at Cooking Towers, believe that we should shout very loudly about our amazing industry and the people who make hospitality the sector it is, through these awards.

Launching with six categories, all voted for by the audience of The Staff Canteen, this is hospitality celebrating hospitality - no stuffy judging panel, no sponsor influence - we want as many of you involved as possible. This is not just about chefs, we have a number of categories open to all areas of hospitality. Watch the awards on November 18th 2020, hosted by The Staff Canteen Editor, Cara Houchen, live on our Facebook page.

Pick an award category and complete the online form to nominate yourself or someone who you think deserves to win. Then when the voting opens, tell your team and friends to vote.

For each category, the 6 nominations with the most votes will go through to a final short list. Voting will then open again for each category and simply the person with the most votes wins.

Remember, there's no judging panel, every award is nominated and voted for by you, so get your team involved, family, friends, cats, dogs, customers, suppliers; you can copy and paste the link on your social channels and ask your followers to vote too. Good Luck!
