cookbook awards competition

LOUISVILLE, Ky. The International Association of Culinary Professionals (IACP) invites publishers and cookbook authors to submit entries for the 2005 IACP Cookbook Awards competition.
The awards program is intended to encourage and promote quality and creativity in writing and publishing, and to expand public awareness of culinary literature.
The IACP Cookbook Awards are presented annually by the IACP to honor the best food and beverage books copyrighted and published during the previous calendar year. Entries are evaluated on a variety of components, including design, content, general overview and recipe testing.
Awards are given to the books judged best in each of the competition's 13 categories, which includes a new category for 2005: Food Photography and Styling. This honor will be awarded to a photographer and stylist for food photography and styling that clearly, accurately and artistically represents the book's recipes or cooking techniques, enhances the text with stimulating visual images and reflects the overall tone of the book. In order to be evaluated on its non-visual content, i.e. the author's text, books entered in this category may also be considered as a separate entry in another category.
Named after one of IACP's most dedicated supporters, the First Book: The Julia Child Award recognizes cookbook authors who have not previously written or co-authored a cookbook. The other categories include: American; Chefs and Restaurants; Bread, Other Baking and Sweets; Food Reference/Technical; General; Health and Special Diet; International; Literary Food Writing; Single Subject; and Wine, Beer or Spirits. One of the category winners also will be selected as the Cookbook of the Year.
The nominees for this year's awards will be announced March 21, 2005, during a press conference in New York City at the Time Warner Building. The awards will be presented on April 16, during IACP's annual international conference in Dallas.
Any new, original book on food or beverages copyrighted in 2004 and published between Dec. 1, 2003 and Nov. 29, 2004 for the first time in English is eligible for consideration in the 2005 awards program. Submissions must be accompanied by a completed entry form and must be received by Nov. 29. Books with a 2003 copyright date which were not published or available for entry in the 2004 awards program by the Dec. 1 deadline will be accepted for consideration in the 2005 awards program. However, a signed affidavit from the publisher stating that the book was not deliverable prior to the 2003 entry deadline must accompany the entry. The entry fee is $100 for each entry in each category.
With over 4,000 members worldwide, representing virtually every profession in the culinary industry, IACP is dedicated to promoting professionalism and excellence among food and beverage professionals.
For more information or to receive an entry form and brochure outlining the details of the awards program, contact Jennifer Montgomery at IACP Headquarters, 304 West Liberty St., Suite 201, Louisville, KY 40202; phone 1-800-928-4227; fax (502) 589-3602 or jmontgomery@hqtrs.com.
