Alaska Fisheries Development Foundation Announces  Dates of Alaska Symphony of Seafood in 2016

Deadline for Entry is January 8th 


WRANGELL, Alaska (Monday, January 4, 2016) — Alaska Fisheries Development Foundation  (AFDF) announced the dates of the Alaska Symphony of Seafood events in 2016.  The Seattle  event, including the judging, will be held on February 10th, the Juneau Legislative Reception  will be held on February 16th and the Award Ceremony in Anchorage will be held on February  19th.    

As announced in December, the Call for Product for the Alaska Symphony of Seafood in 2016  is available at AFDF’s website:  http://www.afdf.org/symphony‐of‐seafood/.  Entry forms and  fees are due by January 8, 2016.      

A new category was introduced this year called Beyond the Egg and will broadly include  products made with roe or uni, such as jarred ikura, herring roe‐on‐kelp, uni paste, or others.    The Beyond the Egg category will join Beyond the Plate, which was a new category in 2015  and broadly includes products with seafood byproducts.    

Each product entered in the competition is grouped into one of four categories:  Retail,  Foodservice, Beyond the Plate, or Beyond the Egg. Product entries are then individually  evaluated by a panel of expert judges during a private judging session. Evaluations are based  on the product’s packaging and presentation, overall eating/consumer experience, price and  potential for commercial success. First, second, third and grand prize winners will be awarded,  as well as the People’s Choice from each promotional event.  In March, the first place winners  will be given an opportunity to display their winning products at Seafood Expo North America  in Boston.
