The Independent on Sunday
The Independent on Sunday has teamed up with the Glenfiddich Food and Drink Awards to launch a search for a talented new restaurant critic. Winning a Glenfiddich is regarded as the highest accolade in the food and drink industry. Every year, it celebrates the best in food and drink writing and broadcasting by giving out 10 highly sought-after gongs. Categories include food writer, drink writer, TV presenter and restaurant critic.
This new prize was introduced for the first time in The Sunday Review last year and was enormously successful. One of the runners-up, Andrew Shanahan, submitted his first-ever restaurant review, which helped him land a top job as food and drink editor of Time Out Manchester and a stint at reviewing restaurants for the Metro newspaper in the North West.
