COMPETITION


A contest for “healthy, safe, and tasty” food items and catering plans that pay special attention to their ingredients.

The second examination will be held in public at the AWRD party.

Shirokane Go-chome Award vol.2 - Food category - is inviting “healthy, safe, and tasty” food items and catering plans that pay special attention to their ingredients. There is a special counter kitchen inside OFS. Since the space has a great atmosphere for socializing, it is used to hold food-related events and seasonal parties with guests. Prize winners will also receive chances to open a stall in future events, and hold parties.

For the food category, we plan to hold a public evaluation at the AWRD party event in OFS on June 27th (Wed). We will receive professional advice from our guest commentator, Rika Fukuda, who is a confectionery researcher. We hope to see tasty foods from all over Japan and the world.

About the Shirokane Go-chome Award

We are accepting applications in three categories. They will be judged by the creative unit, KIGI made up of Ryosuke Uehara and Yoshie Watanabe. In the hopes of becoming a store loved by  customers, we will be welcoming creatives who have taken part in making OFS a place for exchanging and disseminating culture and ideas. They will be participating as commentators to judge the pieces for each category, 

Winners will have a chance to sell their work in stores, as well as participate in events and exhibitions. Come share OUR values and spread out from OFS (OUR FAVORITE SHOP) in Shirokane Go-chome. That is the concept for the Shirokane Go-chome award.
