The closing date for this year's Acorn Awards sponsored by ACT Clean has been extended, so there is still time to nominate your rising stars.
We are seeking 30 of the UK's brightest and most promising talents under the age of 30. Nominations will close on 11 March.
Entrants are invited from all areas of the hospitality industry - from pubs, bars and restaurants to hotels, food service and contract catering.
Now in their 27th year, the Acorn Awards are firmly established as the benchmark for recognising tomorrow's movers and shakers of the hospitality industry.
Previous winner Simon Hulstone, chef-proprietor of the Michelin-starred Elephant bar and restaurant in Torquay, Devon, said: "The Acorn is an industry wide awards, across all sectors, which shows that you don't have to be the face of an establishment to be recognised by your peers. It means so much to see the industry's future stars receive recognition."
This year's 30 talented youngsters will take part in team building and networking at Rockliffe Hall in County Durham.
So if you know of a young future star in your organisation mane your nomination online now www.acornawards.co.uk/
