This year the awards, which have attracted a record-breaking number of entries, are recognising and championing the efforts of local kebab takeaways and restaurants across the UK through the coronavirus pandemic. The organisers have revealed a shortlist of semi-finalists for the 2021 awards.
A spokesman for the British Kebab Awards said: “Both MPs and members of the public voted for their favourite kebab business to go through to the semi-finals.”
The voting stage is open for semi-finalists until June 21. You can vote for your winners here.
The eventual winners will be decided by a panel of judges and announced at a ceremony at Park Plaza Westminster, London on October 26.
Ibrahim Dogus, founder of the British Kebab Awards and director of the recently formed Kebab Alliance, said: “Kebab eateries are a key part of the local community and it’s great to see so many entries at the end of a year that has tested every business operating in the hospitality sector.
“Getting to the semi-final is a real achievement given the competition across the country and all outlets should be rightly proud. We wish all semi-finalists the best of luck.”
We’ll keep you posted with the progress of the competition.
