We’re excited to announce that the 2019 IACP Awards are officially open for submissions. With our new awards season upon us, we’ve listened to our members’ feedback and have been working to enact significant changes to all of the awards, processes, fees, and judging. Our goals in this work have been to greatly increase the transparency and fairness of our awards, the diversity of our judges and award recipients, and to improve accessibility to our awards program.
The following changes have been implemented with the guidance of our newly formed IACP Awards Advisory Committee. This committee has been tasked with evaluating our awards programs for transparency, fairness, consistency, and their effectiveness at honoring the full spectrum of the culinary community. The committee will continue their work through 2019 to provide even more improvements to our awards in future. The members of our advisory committee are:
Writer, former editor at Condé Nast Traveler, Bon Appétit, Yahoo, and Atlanta magazine, and host of The Lonely Hour podcast
Full-time writing coach at Will Write for Food, author, and freelance editor
Duy Linh Tu
Professor of journalism at Columbia University and a leading multimedia journalist and video storyteller
Recipe developer and cookbook author who has worked at Food & Wine, Everyday with
Rachael Ray, and many other publications
A Vietnamese-born, American teacher, food writer, cookbook author and chef living in the San Francisco area
Associate editor of Poetry International. Cookbook author and food writer
We would also like to introduce our new IACP awards liaison, Director of Awards and Culinary Events, Paola Briseño González. She is responsible for managing awards and producing IACP’s flagship tasting events. Questions about awards can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
