The festival awards recognise excellence in Visa Wellington On a Plate participants. And you have the chance to help determine who will be awarded best Festival Dish, Cocktail and Burger Wellington each year.
Each and every Cocktail, Burger and Festival Dish entry is open for rating out of 10. Please note you will need to have a profile and be logged in to visawoap.com to rate entries.
At the end of the festival, we determine the five finalists for each category based on the ratings you've given. Those final five are then judged by industry peers, and combined with your ratings, we determine the overall winner! Winners receive sweet prizes, and importantly, bragging rights for a year.
Ratings are open from 1-31 August. You can change any of your ratings anytime until midnight 31 August.
So get ready to get rating in 2019 .. in the meantime check out the happy faces from 2018 below.
