For the very first time, internet mavens, television execs, foodie moguls, style editors, video producers, podcasters, vidbloggers, designers, and tastemakers will gather to celebrate the best in food, wine, and style programming. The reason: The 1st Annual TASTY AWARDS.
The Tasty Awards spotlight the year’s best achievements in food, wine, and style programming. Regardless of whether they are on the web or on television, on a mobile device or on a cinema screen, a celebrity chef or a home chef, each has a chance to win this coveted honor.
Finalists are selected by the Tastemaker Awards Panel, an association of food editors, editors, writers and bloggers, chefs, television producers and stations, online video platforms, mobile device providers, and others. There is also a set of Viewer’s Choice Awards, selected online by the general public. Winners of the Tasty Awards will receive their honors on January 14th, 2010 at a gala celebration in San Francisco, which will be streamed live online over Justin.tv, as well as filmed for broadcast on national television in February 2010. Lifetime Achievement Awards and other Special Awards will also be presented to valuable contributors to the industry.
