National Chilli Awards 2009
The National Chilli Awards was another event that was a highlight of the Fiery Food Festival. The organisers are looking for further funding to get this even into the mainstream next year and the piece I was commissioned to produce covering this was part of the larger strategy to gain more sponsorship for future events.
To show the depth of this event – it is in growers’ circles a prized accolade – I took the opportunity to talk to the judges as well as cover the the certificate presentation. I felt it was important to allow the viewer – or potential sponsor – to see a little more than just who won.
