The Guild of Food Writers is delighted to announce that 17-year-old Lidia Fanzo from Devon has won the 2013 Write It Competition. Lidia fought off stiff competition from many aspiring young food writers.
This annual competition, organised by the Guild of Food Writers, is open to entrants aged up to 18 years old. Entrants were asked to write a non-fiction feature of around 750 words on any food-related subject.
The judges, Elisabeth Luard, Alex Renton and Karen Barnes were unanimous in their verdict on Lidia’s piece. They described the feature as ‘well written and clever, with an element of surprise.’ The judges loved ‘this hymn to what has evidently been a trusted companion – great descriptive powers and ability to communicate emotion. Just enough romance backed up by practical info. A worthy winner.’
Lidia’s prize includes all the books shortlisted for the 2013 Guild of Food Writers Awards, as well as the opportunity to have her entry published on the delicious magazine website and to have a trip to the delicious test kitchen.
The judges also highly commended:
