With the support of S.Pellegrino® Sparkling Natural Mineral Water, who is committed to shining a spotlight on diverse voices in the industry, the James Beard Foundation will waive the entry fee this year for our Book, Broadcast, and Design awards during the first two weeks of the open call, from October 15 to 29, 2018. For work to be published or released after the window closes, (i.e. between October 29, 2018 and December 30, 2018), the Foundation will allow individuals to write in for exception, which the committees will review on a case by case basis.
To ensure the Journalism awards attract new voices, the entry fee for first-time submissions will be waived for the entire entry period (October 15, 2018, through January 2, 2019). Individual writers who have never submitted a work and who have never had their work submitted on their behalf by a media company to which they contribute are eligible for this free entry.
There is no fee to recommend candidates for the Restaurant and Chef Awards.
In addition, for the first time, we are soliciting recommendations for the James Beard Foundation Leadership Awards.
