  1. Originality (25%),
  2. Creative name for sandwich (25%),
  3. Photographic appeal (25%),
  4. Practicality (25%)

Part Two (The preparation and taste test). All four finalist sandwiches will be prepared for sampling by our judging panel and evaluated based on the following judging criteria:

  1. Creative use of ingredients (25%),
  2. Ease in preparation (25%),
  3. Taste (50%),

What rules are there around sandwich recipe submissions?

Each submission must include an original sandwich recipe and photo. It must also not have been published previously, and must not infringe third-party rights.

Sandwich recipes found not to be original will be removed from the site. There is no limit to the amount of sandwich recipes a person can submit through the website.

Sandwiches can include any combination of ingredients and must be served on bread products such as rolls, buns, wraps, biscuits, sliced bread, focaccia, etc.

Are hot dog and hamburger recipes eligible?

Technically speaking both hot dog and hamburger recipes are sandwiches. We believe they are in a category by themselves so we are excluding hamburger and hot dog recipes (frankfurter’s) from the website. But if you have a creative sausage sandwich recipe (anything but a frankfurter), we'd love to see it!!
