Vote now for your favourites from from the region's food and drink industry

We are delighted to be able to bring you the 2014 Kent Life and Kent on Sunday Food & Drink Awards, sponsored by: Motorline Maserati.

The Awards will take place at Tudor Park Marriott Hotel and Country Park, Bearsted, near Maidstone on Thursday 13 November 2014, from 6.30pm to midnight.

These awards are designed to champion, highlight and offer a showcase to the good and the great from the region’s food and drink industry, including local producers and suppliers, small farming businesses, chefs, restaurants, pubs and hoteliers, people who care about the countryside and the future of our local environment.

The companies featured are all nominated by you, our wonderful Kent Life and Kent on Sunday readers. We want to know if you’ve received a fantastic meal at your local pub or have been impressed by the produce and service at your neighbourhood Farmers’ Market or farm shop.

The nomination form is available in print form within Kent Life and Kent on Sunday if you prefer to vote by post, available to complete or download online at www.kent-life.co.uk and at www.kentnews.co.uk or email us at: kentfda@archant.co.uk.

Entries close on 1 August 2014. Our handpicked panel of high-profile judges, who all live and work in Kent, then select a shortlist. This kickstarts the independent judging process, when all the finalists will be visited or interviewed to determine a worthy winner in each of the 12 categories.

All finalists will be invited to the awards ceremony in November, where they will enjoy a fabulous reception and three-course meal prepared by Tudor Park’s talented head chef Tom Biddle before finding out if they are a winner this year.

This is our second Kent Life and Kent on Sunday Food & Drink Awards and we are immensely proud to be able to offer you once again the opportunity to reward and recognise the deserving businesses within our local food and drink industry that go above and beyond expectations.

These awards are what you, our readers, make of them so if you are the owner of a pub or restaurant, a chef or local producer, then spread the word among your clients, customers and visitors.

It takes no time at all to cast your vote. You can email or post your nominees. The judging panel is looking for quality over quantity, focusing on good comments rather than simply the number of votes so that everybody is in with a chance, no matter how big or small their business.

Don’t forget to let us know on our Twitter pages @kentlife and @KOSMedia when you have made your vote, by using #kentfda – similarly, if you are looking
