NOW IN ITS 30th YEar...

The first AFJ Awards Competition took place in 1987. In the last 30 years, hundreds of judges have reviewed thousands of entries with one common goal - to recognize and perpetuate excellence in food journalism. 

In 2017, we received almost 300 entries representing a broad swath of newspapers, magazines and online journals that focus on everything from fitness to finance. Here is the complete list of finalists.

Winners will be announced on Wednesday, September 13 at the annual AFJ conference in Philadelphia.
