Dear Edior, I appeal to your readers for help?
We have had reports recently from various parts of the country that some curry restaurants are falsely claiming in their advertising or other promotional material to be winners of a British Curry Award.
The Awards are the Oscars of our industry and the ultimate accolade for those who win them.
So it’s unfair both on our genuine winners and restaurant customers throughout the UK if some seek to gain advantage by claiming to be something they are not.
A list of winners from the last seven years can be found on our website at www.britishcurryawards.co.uk and I would urge your readers to report to us any restaurant that is erroneously claiming past success so that we can take action against them. They can do so by emailing us at email@example.com
On a more positive note, the nomination process for the 2012 British Curry Awards is now open and anyone can put forward a restaurant for consideration. Last year an amazing 2,700 restaurants were entered for the awards from a record 68,000 public nominations.
So if you have a favourite curry restaurant that you think is deserving of recognition, please let us know.
Nomination forms are available on our website and will be accepted up to September 24.
The winners will be announced at the Battersea Evolution, London, on November 26.
