Awards Mission Statement

The mission of the James Beard Awards is to recognize exceptional talent and achievement in the culinary arts, hospitality, media, and broader food system, as well as a demonstrated commitment to racial and gender equity, community, sustainability, and a culture where all can thrive.

The 2022 Awards will be the first since changes to the Awards were made as a result of an audit of our policies and procedures, including establishing a Code of Ethics and an independent review process conducted by our volunteer Ethics Committee.
