Applications close next week to enter the “Innovate Your Plate” event from Root the Future, a climate-forward food competition for completely plant-based dishes.

Among the winners will be three restaurants which will receive over B1 million in prizes, including curated chef's table events and a professional photoshoot and video feature. The competition is open to restaurant owners, chefs, and food lovers. 

A panel of judges will visit shortlisted restaurants across Thailand to decide the three winning venues. Dishes will be judged on taste, innovation, and popularity, and winners will be announced January 3. 

In addition to the health benefits, more plant-based diets can help us all postpone the Bruce Willis-movie style apocalypse that awaits us all. 

Applications opened earlier this week, and rules for the competition are available here
