Sponsorship

We welcome opportunities to work with brands who would like to connect with our members and audience. As the UK’s only professional association of food writers, we are uniquely placed to help you reach the country’s leading food writers, journalists and broadcasters.

 

Partnership will give you the opportunity to raise your brand profile and build meaningful relationships with our 550+ members and wider network who have a huge influence on the British food scene and are serious about their responsibility as intelligent and knowledgeable opinion formers. 

 

We currently offer category sponsorship of the annual Guild of Food Writers Awards and our Guild of Food Writers Young Food Writer Competition.

  

 

Awards Sponsorship

 

The Guild of Food Writers is the UK’s professional association of food writers and broadcasters and the annual Awards are one of the highest accolades in food media. They celebrate the very best in professional food writing, broadcasting and publishing. The event is attended by around 300 guests and in previous years included Rick Stein, Heston Blumenthal, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, Nigella Lawson and Yotam Ottolenghi.

 

 

Category sponsors

 

We offer sponsorship of 15 awards categories with exclusivity in your sector. Each year we receive hundreds of entries from the country’s top food writers, journalists and broadcasters. Sponsors are invited to the Awards to celebrate with the shortlistees, judges and winners and benefit from branding and recognition in all Awards communications throughout the year.

 

If you are interested in sponsoring one of these categories please contact: the Guild Administrator by emailing admin@gfw.co.uk.

 

 

The Guild of Food Writers Young Food Writer Competition

 

The Guild of Food Writers Young Food Writer Competition is our annual competition for young food writers. The competition encourages school age children from three age groups (10 and under, 11–14 and 15–18) to capture one of their favourite food experiences on the page. The competition was established in 2008 and has seen prestigious names from the Guild’s membership judge entries from more than 1,000 aspiring food writers. 

 

We are happy to discuss ideas for sponsorship opportunities still available for the current year. To register your interest, please email the Guild administrator on admin@gfw.co.uk.
