Be a judge at the British Pie Awards


Would you like to be a judge for the day at the British Pie Awards?

Then enter our fantastic competition to do just that.

The British Pie Awards take place on 9th March 2016 at Melton Mowbray and you could join Taste of Game Development Manager Annette Cole to judge the Speciality Pie section.

Travel costs up to £150 are included and can be claimed with evidence.

The world-famous Awards, which are to be held on 9th March 2016 in the Leicestershire town of Melton Mowbray, are in their eighth year. The hotly coveted contest continues to grow in popularity, with last year’s Awards seeing a staggering 830 pies entered from 131 professional bakers, butchers and chefs – judged by 109 pie aficionados.

The Awards celebrate our nation’s love of pies – be they hot or cold, sweet or savoury. A few simple pie rules must be adhered to though: all pies are to be totally encased in pastry with a closed top, and fit into one of the pre-assigned classes.

For the 2016 Awards and in celebration of HM The Queen’s 90th birthday – bakers, butchers and chefs are invited to create a pie ‘fit for Her Majesty The Queen’.

To enter the draw just answer the following question
