The wine list should be in use at the time of entry into the competition and all wines should be available for a minimum of 5 months after the receipt of entry.

Upon submission of entry form and payment of entry fee, the participant automatically confirms acceptance of these terms and conditions and represents an unconditional agreement to abide by them.
Should any participant suffer loss of any kind and for whatever reason as a result of such participation, such as expenses or liabilities resulting therefrom, these shall be for his own account and any right to claim against MSquared or food24 is automatically waived through the act of participation.
MSquared reserves the right to alter, amend or cancel all or parts of these rules at any stage between the announcement of the results and the issuing of entry forms for the following years Awards. The right is also reserved to disqualify entries in the interest of eliminating artificial advantage [e.g. a proprietor using reserve stocks common to more than one restaurant so that entries for each restaurant are submitted in one or more categories].
The results of judging by appointed independent specialists shall be final and no discussion or communication regarding results will be entered into by MSquared or food24.
Winners of the Awards undertake to frame display the Award prominently on their premises within one week of receiving the Award. By “display” is meant securely fixing the framed Award to the wall at eye level or higher in such a position that it can be easily seen by most patrons either on entering or leaving the restaurant or during their time within the restaurants.
