NOMINATIONS for the next one have opened Eat Game Awards.

The Eat Game initiative, created by the British Shooting and Conservation Association (BASC), wants members of the public to nominate their champions.

The awards were established five years ago to encourage the promotion of wild meat.

Last year, 250 citizens and enterprises were nominated for prizes.

This year’s competition features eight categories, including best small and large trader, restaurant or pub, butcher and ‘influencer’.

Acceptance of nominations for this year’s competition ends on November 20.

Annette Woolcock, Head of Wild Products at BASC, said: “We are determined to raise awareness of the health and environmental benefits of game meat and encourage its wider consumption in the UK.

“The Eat Game Awards are a great way to recognize local businesses, emerging talent and those who have spent years or even decades spreading the word about game meat through their work.

“As we’ve seen before, there are so many people and businesses doing such wonderful things to support the use of British game and this is your chance to give them the recognition they deserve.”
