The judging process

Our live judging will take place on Wednesday 23 September adhering to the government and public health guidelines.

Our panel of expert judges will sample and test each loaf live on-site, assessing them on the following criteria: external appearance, internal structure, aroma and taste.

The judges divide into teams to score the entries in each category, then come back together to collectively choose their winner and highly commended in each class.

All winners will be announced online on Thursday 24 September. Come and celebrate as we recognise the very best in British bread at Britain’s Best Loaf 2020 awards presentation.
