The woman&home Festive Food Awards sees the expert testing panel sample hundreds of products. The final list published to our millions of readers will be a must buy collection of Christmas classics, tasty innovations and the products everyone will be talking about this festive season.

Our Judges are looking for:

  • The very best Christmas classics 
  • New and exciting innovations that bring something special to this year’s festive table
  • Drinks from classic fizz, perfect food pairings, brilliant bargains to new festive tipples
  • Top buys for every diet - veggie, vegan, gluten free etc

The Judges

The food team produces all the food content for the Women’s Lifestyle and Homes verticals within Future. They contribute content to print editions and all expert food content for the online platforms within these divisions. As well as writing recipes, they test thousands of products each year. Recommending the best to the far reaching readership. 

The Judging
Every product is judged blind. This means there is no favouritism and the food is judged purely on its own merits. The team takes into account flavour, appearance and the suitability of the product.

From all the products that the team tests, a winner and two highly commended products are chosen for each category.

Who is eligible to enter?
Any food product can be entered into the woman&home Festive Food Awards as long as their product will be available to consumers this Christmas. 



Not only will you be recognised by some of the UK’s most prominent women’s lifestyle brands, winning products will feature across both print and digital platforms.

Last year's Christmas Food content ranked as the first 3 results on google for Best Christmas Turkey, Christmas Hampers, and Best Christmas Food!
