Enrollment is open for inde­pen­dent pro­duc­ers and olive oil enthu­si­asts in the 3rd Southern Hemisphere Olive Oil Championship. The con­test wel­comes food­ies, blog­gers, chefs, and stu­dents from New Zealand, Australia, and South Africa to marry award-win­ning extra vir­gin olive oils with palat­able and inno­v­a­tive culi­nary con­cep­tions.

Armonia just wrapped up its 8th International Olive Oil Competition in Seville. Contestants in the Southern Hemisphere Championship will select from the win­ning oils to con­struct their dishes.

This year’s theme EVOO, Rice and…” allows con­tes­tants to incor­po­rate either rice or risotto into their com­po­si­tions to present to a panel of judges.

An Australian-led judg­ing panel, as well as a con­sumer panel for a people’s choice award, will super­vise the con­test which will cul­mi­nate in a gala din­ner and award cer­e­mony in December, 2014 in Sydney. Registration will stay open through September 26th, 2014.

Winners of the cham­pi­onship will be pro­moted by the The Olive Oil Academy to par­tic­i­pat­ing Australian restau­rants.

Complete rules and entry details can be found on the International Extra Virgin Olive Oil Agency web­site.
