Become A Judge, Volunteer, and More
If you’re someone who’s a major fan of food, becoming a judge is an opportunity you won’t want to miss. All judges at World Food Championships must earn their certification from EAT™, the special scoring system that makes a WFC judge and allows for a consistent scoring process throughout the competition.
