Best Plate Challenge

WorldFood Istanbul and World Gourmet Society Present:
“Best Plate Challenge”

This year’s exclusive partner for the international “Best Plate Challenge” organized by World Gourmet Society is WorldFood Istanbul.

In the “Best Plate Challenge”, the best and most creative plates will be rewarded.
WorldFood Istanbul has become the exclusive partner of the international “Best Plate Challenge” by partnering up with the World Gourmet Society, a prestigious society consisting of the world’s leading chefs, gourmets, food writers, journalists and restaurant managers.

After the successful business results obtained from last year’s challenge organized in Turkey for the first time, WorldFood Istanbul invites Turkish chefs to exhibit their best and most creative plates at the “Best Plate Challenge” to be organized in Turkey for the second time.

The goal is to create a bridge for chefs all around Turkey in supporting them with their recognition in the international platform, promotion of local products and sharing of their culture.

Hotel/restaurant/café chefs who prepare and serve high-quality dishes and wish to participate in the challenge can send their videos no more than 3 minutes in length, prepared effectively with video graphics, explaining why their plate is so creative and why they are a unique chef and representing their country/region with local material to the address of sefineniyitabagi@ite-turkey.com.

All accepted videos will be presented to the World Gourmet Society’s (WGS) global community and to a world class jury appointed by WGS. The finalists that will be determined from the accepted videos will get to promote their plates to thousands of visitors within the scope of World Food Istanbul, to be organized on September 4-7, 2019. The winner of “Best Plate Challenge Turkey” will be given their medal at the ceremony that will take place at WorldFood Istanbul in the presence of the founder of WGS and members of the jury.
All participants accepted to the Best Plate Challenge will also earn the right to directly participate in the global challenge. The global finals will take place on January 27, 2020 in London and host renowned chefs from all around the world.
Participants will have the chance to be included in more than 10 newsletters and various announcements to a network of more than 50,000 gourmands consisting of the prestigious WGS members, press releases directed to more than 3,000 journalists and over 35 press articles, radio, and TV exposure, while they “leave their mark on social media” with their videos.
The videos will be evaluated in eight different categories and the finalists and a winner will be determined for each category. You can submit your video and win in more than one category. The star category of this year is: ”Show Your Chef Persona!”
