This spring the 7th annual MYANMORE Awards is taking place with its mission to push the industry to a new level and give recognition to all the quality establishments and entrepreneurs in Myanmar.
The nomination process is taking place across several different platforms to make it easier to participate and nominate. The venues from each category with the most nominations will be compiled into a shortlist, and a panel of independent expert judges will conduct thorough and undercover evaluations of the shortlisted venues. Attention is being focussed on three specific areas of excellence: product, environment, and service.
The Venue Excellence awards categories are:
- Restaurant of the Year
- Café of the Year
- Bar of the Year
- Myanmar Food Restaurant of the Year
- Newcomer of the Year
Myanmar Brewery will present its sponsored awards, this year to both Yangon and Mandalay, covering:
- The Best Myanmar Beer Restaurant
- The Best Myanmar Premium Beer Bar
In addition to this, five awards that celebrate special contributions to excellence by individuals and teams will also be awarded. Nominations for these awards come from leaders in the food and beverage industry and are being judged by an independent panel of industry experts.
The Special Contribution to Excellence awards categories are:
- Chef of the Year
- Wine and Spirit Ambassador of the Year
- Entrepreneur of the Year
- Green Award of the Year
The winners of the Special Contribution to Excellence Awards will become MYANMORE Ambassadors of Excellence, whose standards and qualities will inspire others to aim for excellence. Likewise, award-winning venues will also be profiled as benchmarks of excellence. Winners will be featured in regular print and online articles and exclusive video ‘catch-ups’ throughout the year.
