Deadline for submissions: November 30, 2020 by 5:00pm ET


In good times and bad, there’s always a sandwich. The dish works for every daypart, across all segments and for all ages. For restaurants, the humble sandwich offers versatility and an opportunity to create an approachable menu offering that keeps guests coming back.

For the first time ever, the Palm Beach Food & Wine Festival will recognize the most innovative sandwichmakers in Palm Beach County and the trends they represent. If you have or know of an amazing new panini, grilled cheese, po’ boy or torta that customers are talking about, we want to hear about it. Any style of sandwich is welcome, but this contest does not include burgers. For official rules (click here).

Submissions end on November 30, 2020. A panel of judges will evaluate the top 10 sandwich entries and narrow them down on Facebook Live on Saturday, December 11, 2020 at 2pm ET. The judges will vote on the winners in various categories and ultimately the #1 sandwich will prevail. The winners in each category will be showcased in the April 2021 issue of Palm Beach Illustrated and on

TWO LUCKY WINNERS: The first place winner will receive a Grand Prize of $10,000. All voting/entries will be automatically entered and one person will win a sandwich-a-day for an entire year (a $3,650 value, must be at least 18yrs old to win, no purchase necessary). So every vote counts!

HELP SUPPORT OUR CHARITY! For each vote, $1 will be donated to a local charity (suggested charities include: Feeding South Florida, Palm Beach County Food Bank, No Kid Hungry)
