Has your wild game hero been shortlisted?

Following over 250 businesses being nominated, the Eat Game Awards’ shortlist has been published ahead of a public vote to reveal this year’s wild game heroes.

In its fourth year, the Eat Game Awards seek to celebrate and reward those who are championing wild game, and going the extra mile to promote and utilise the produce.

Categories that can be voted on by the public include: best restaurant, best chef, best butcher, best small retailer, best large retailer, best educator, best added value product and best media storm.

Voting on the Eat Game website will be open from 12 January 2022 to 21 February 2022, with the winners being announced at an awards ceremony in March.

Annette Woolcock, BASC’s head of wild food, said: “The number of businesses nominated this year has been encouragingly large. This has resulted in a particularly tough shortlisting process. Congratulations to all the nominated businesses and good luck to everyone shortlisted.

“As ever, a big thank-you to all the sponsors who this year have each provided a £1,000 bonus to the winner of each category.”
