The finalists that will be determined from the accepted videos will get to promote their plates to thousands of visitors within the scope of World Food Istanbul, to be organized on September 5-8, 2018. The winner of “Best Plate Challenge Turkey” will be given their medal at the ceremony that will take place at WorldFood Istanbul in the presence of the founder of WGS and members of the jury.
