New Business Award


Have you started a food related business since October 2014?

Is your turnover less than £70,000 per year? 

Are you based within the South West using local products, ingredients and/or suppliers?

If you can answer yes to all 3 questions then then why not apply for our New Business Start-up Award and let the Dartmouth Food Festival promote your fledgling company!

The chosen company will benefit from:

  • A free 3 day pitch at the 2017 Dartmouth Food Festival
  • A ½ day photo shoot with Original Image Photography and a selection of images for your own use
  • An hour discussion with the Festival’s PR and Marketing team (Sizer PR and The Marketing Shed)
  • The chance to talk to a business start-up and financial expert
  • A tailored marketing and PR campaign run via the festival social media and other channels


To apply just fill in the application form, send it to us by June 1st and keep your fingers crossed!

Judging will take place during June with the winner being notified by the 30th June.

You may apply for a pitch in the usual way as well and if you are the subsequent winner of our New Business Start-up Award your pitch fee will be refunded.
