LA Judge Award: 2021 

Unfortunately, there will be no LA Judge Award in 2021.

AEGIC looked at many avenues to try and host the competition in some form for 2021, but ultimately we decided to focus on bringing back the full LA Judge Award bigger and better for 2022 – including the return of the Gala Dinner and Award Ceremony. Stay tuned!

LA Judge Award

Since 1967, Australasia’s most prestigious annual baking prize has recognised the best young baking apprentice in Australia and New Zealand.

Each year, apprentice bakers compete for the honour of the LA Judge title. The LA Judge Award recognises their baking ability and industry knowledge to identify future industry leaders. There are many examples of past competitors and winners who have gone on to make their mark in the baking industry.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get a head start in the Australian baking industry. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by nominating as a candidate for the LA Judge Award! To find out more, talk to your state baking association or call AEGIC on (02) 8025 3200.

The gala dinner and award presentation is attended by over 200 industry stakeholders and is an opportunity to gain excellent brand exposure.

Leading industry companies have supported this award for over 50 years to improve the industry and encourage young people to better their skills through competition. AEGIC is proud to continue hosting this event with the vital support of industry partners.
