Great news: You loved SELF’s inaugural Pantry Awards so much that we’re bringing them back for a second year. For the uninitiated, this project is all about showing love for the foods—namely, packaged items—that get us through our day-to-day life: products that are accessible, that make life a little bit easier, and are, of course, delicious. We want to remind our readers that what’s lying around in their pantry can be nourishing, satisfying, and fun to eat—just as well-suited for a lazy dinner as it might be for a New Year’s Eve cocktail party.
Brands and publicists, it’s your time! Below, you’ll find everything you need to know to submit this year. We can’t wait to get a taste!
How to Submit to the 2024 SELF Pantry Awards
- To be eligible, a product must be available for sale no later than March 1, 2024.
- Samples must be available for testing as early as December. If sending samples is a financial hardship for your brand, please note in your submission form—we can work together to figure something out!
- We kindly ask that each brand submits no more than five items total. Submissions are free!
- Below, you can find our list of eligible product categories. If you’re wondering whether a specific product fits into one of them, email [email protected] and we can help you out.
Our Process and Timeline
All products must be submitted via our online form by December 5, 2023. If we’d like to test your product, we’ll reach out within a few weeks of the submission deadline to arrange samples. To reduce waste, we may not call in items that editors have previously sampled or already have at home.
Please fill out one form per item—so if you’d like to submit one type of oatmeal and one type of granola, you should fill out two separate forms. If you are submitting a product that’s available in multiple flavor varieties, please only fill out one form and note the varieties you would like us to consider on that form. (There’s a space where you can do just that!)
