As the Awards evolve, we need to fine-tune the process. Either some categories were not popular with applicants, or ended up not being as important to recognize as we initially thought. Therefore some categories were eliminated, while others were added. Some minor adjustments to category names also took place over the years. We strive to make the Awards the world's best food tourism awards, and sometimes changes need to be made. We reserve the right to change category names and definitions at any time without notice (and we would do so with the single goal of improving the Awards each time).
