How do I enter and get votes?
Entering is easy, just follow these simple steps:
1. Take a photo of your favourite home cooked meal.
2. Upload your photo here along with a title and description of your dish.
3. All winners are chosen by public vote so make sure you share your entry link on Facebook, email or sms so your friends can vote for you!

Can I enter more than one recipe?
Whilst we’re sure you have many great home cooked dishes, for this competition you can only enter one. It could be a family favourite, your go-to crowd pleaser for entertaining, the ultimate comfort food or a dish you’ve cooked more times than you can count!

Can I submit my favourite recipe from a cookbook?
Cookbooks are great for inspiration but we want to see your own recipe, not someone else’s. You can put your own twist on an existing recipe or add new ingredients to make it your own. For inspiration on delicious home cooked recipes, click here.

Can I submit a photo that I did not take?
The photo that you submit must be an original image of your dish, not copied from a cook book or website.

Am I able to enter if I work in the food industry?
This competition is all about celebrating the amazing home cooks across Australia. If you happen to work in the food industry but do not cook food as a profession then you are eligible to enter. If you are a chef then unfortunately you are not eligible to enter this competition but if you are interested in working with us on other projects in the future, please email us.

Do I have to be Australian?
To enter NEFF’s 50 Best Home Cooks competition you must be an Australian resident over the age of 18.

Judging +

How is the competition judged?
NEFF’s 50 Best Home Cooks is decided by public vote at theneffkitchen.com.au/50BestHomeCooks. Voting is limited to one vote per entry meaning each of your friends and family can only vote for your entry once.

How do I get public votes?
The public are voting on your recipe based on 3 things:
a photo of your dish;
your recipe title; and
why you love cooking this dish;
so make sure your photo looks great, your recipe title sounds delicious and your description lets
people know what makes your dish unique.

Once you’ve completed your entry, simply share your voting link on Facebook or via email so your family and friends can follow the link and cast their vote.

How good does my photo need to be?
The public will not be able to try your delicious dish so you’ll need to make sure it looks as good as it tastes! Whether you take the photo on a professional camera or your phone, if you look at it and think your dish looks delicious, it’s perfect.

What if I make the top 50?
If you are voted in the top 50 by the public, you will then need to submit your recipe so we can include your dish in NEFF’s 50 Best Home Cooks e-book!
