Final call for entries for the Beer Writer of the Year Award

Final call for entries for the Beer Writer of the Year Award

The deadline for entries to the Brewers Guild Beer Writer of the Year Award is fast approaching, with submissions due on Friday 6 June.

Won last year by Michael Donaldson for his book Beer Nation, this award aims to recognise outstanding contribution in the media by any individual.

The award may be given for one outstanding contribution or a collection of contributions that together demonstrate an outstanding annual portfolio across a range or combination of media.

Contribution in the media is not restricted to any one media format and may include a combination of print, television, film or social media amongst others.

Contributions must centre on beer, brewing and/or closely related industry or issues surrounding them. There is no caveat that articles necessarily show the brewing industry in a positive light but contributions should be informative, educational and/or entertaining.

All material must have been made publicly available from 1 May to 30 April over the year preceding the award.

Applicants are asked to submit articles or portfolios. Submissions must include copies or links to articles as appropriate, a list of the articles that are to be considered for judging and a brief cover letter explaining why the applicant merits the award of Brewers Guild of New Zealand Beer Writer of the Year.

Entries must be received by Friday 6 June 2014.

Submissions should be sent via email by Friday 6 June to:
