Bite and Mos Awards 2023

On June 29, 2023, Tourism of the Generalitat of Catalonia celebrated the National Wine Tourism and Gastronomy Gala at the National Theatre of Catalonia (TNC).

The first edition of the Bite and Mos Awards took place during the event. The goal is to recognize the fundamental role played by the different digital food and wine content creators from different perspectives and fields: chefs, photographers, journalists, gastronomic travellers or foodies that have made their passion for food and wine their way of life or their profession, in a global and local context.

This way, the awards want to acknowledge and honour the creators who have the ability to make their content readily visible to digital audiences from the widest scope possible, such as directly from the restaurants and chefs themselves, but also from all types of content creators who have dedicated their work to the dissemination of restaurants and wineries.

The awards are divided into two categories: Bite and Mos.
