BEST TAKE-AWAY

It could be Indian, Italian, Chinese or good old fish and chips. The BBC want to hear about excellent ready made meals that are fresh, made from carefully sourced ingredients and provide value for money.

BEST ' DINNER LADY/MAN'

Whether it's in a school, a hospital, a care home, or the workplace - this is awarded to a cook who provides a wide range of, healthy, tasty food in any institutional setting. The BBC are looking for meals prepared on the premises with fresh, carefully sourced ingredients.

BEST FOOD MARKET

Awarded to the market making fresh, locally-grown food accessible to its community. As well as farmers' markets the BBC are interested in regular, local food markets with a wide range of high quality produce - particularly in areas ill-served by other food retailers.

BEST LOCAL FOOD RETAILER

It could be your favourite corner shop, high street butcher, baker or local deli. Tell the BBC about the retailer near you making a difference to the community - and to the producers who supply it.

THE DEREK COOPER AWARD

For the individual or organisation that has done most to increase our knowledge and understanding of good food and the vital role it plays in our lives. 2007's winner was Compassion in World Farming.

BEST RETAIL INITIATIVE

The BBC are interested in an imaginative initiative that's changing the way good quality food is being sourced and sold. It could be a supermarket, wholesaler, website, or chain of food shops - that's transforming your access to great produce with an original idea.

BBC FOOD PERSONALITY OF THE YEAR

It could be a writer, broadcaster,  chef; a role model who inspires a passion for good food and communicates the importance of great produce with enthusiasm and clarity. Previous winners include Rick Stein, Jamie Oliver, Gordon Ramsay and James Martin
