Here at The Weekend Edition we take our food very seriously, and we know that you, our dear readers, do too. That’s why we’re so excited to announce the 11th annual EAT/drink Awards for 2018. With so many bars, cafes, restaurants and food retailers opening this last year, we are preparing to host our largest epicurean poll to date.
Voting is now closed for The Weekend Edition’s 11th annual EAT/drink Awards, proudly supported by Bundaberg Ginger Beer.
The Brisbane food scene has come a long way in 11 years, and so have our EAT/drink awards. The awards launched with our beloved map magazine in 2007 as Brisbane’s first entirely reader-voted food awards. Following map’s retirement in 2014, The Weekend Edition has continued to grow the awards and celebrate the best places in Brisbane to eat and drink.
The past year has been a big one for food and drink venues, and it’s time to recognise the unheard of, the institutions, the rising stars, the midnight pitstops and the unbeatable. The Weekend Edition’s EAT/drink Awards delve into Brisbane’s culinary culture to determine locals’ favourite places to eat and play, and now is your chance to make sure your favourite foodie destination is in the running for this year’s awards. Be it the lazy corner cafe, award-winning restaurant, latest bar or food truck, there’s a place to eat and drink for everyone in Brisbane.
This year we are bringing back our special bonus category – Best Food Porn. This category is voted exclusively on Instagram – take a snap of a drool-worthy dish, post it to Instagram, include the venue name in the comments, tag @_weekendedition and #TWEFoodPorn.
Voting is now closed – winners will be announced on Monday March 26. While we were inundated with nominations, we had to narrow this year’s voting down to the top 20 nominations in each category. In appreciation for your time to enter (maybe grab a coffee as it will take a few minutes), you have the chance to be rewarded for your efforts! Bundaberg Ginger Beer has put together a VIP package for the voter who selects the most winners across all the categories, including a year’s supply of Bundaberg Ginger Beer (that’s 12 cartons!) and a $200 voucher to dine at the winner of the Best New Restaurant category, valued at $560. Plus a voter in each category, drawn at random, will win a 13 pack featuring every flavour of Bundaberg Brewed Drinks, including Tropical Mango, Blood Orange, Peach, Burgundee Creaming Soda and more. Good luck!
