2018 Australia Best Fish and Chips Competition coming soon

About the 2018 Awards.

There will be two categories: People’s choice and a judge’s choice. The winners from the state and territories will go through to compete for the National title of Best Fish and Chips 2018.

Voting Criteria

Fish and chips will be rated against a set of five criteria, whether by public or under-cover judge, to ensure the best is found. In each state and territory, once the top 10 have been determined by People’s choice, under-cover judges will then determine the winner of each state. Once we have our 8 finalists, Judges will again Judge to determine who nationally has the Best Fish and Chips 2018.
