As part of our commitment to transparency and as voted for in our 2012 review surveys, from the 2013 European Semi-final onwards, we will publish the names of the judges for each competition. (If judges opt-in for their names to be made public.)

Each competition is judged by a panel of experts judges, food journalists, sommeliers and pastry chefs. The competition is overseen by members of our international Grand Jury, who travel to each competition.
