This year, the State Fair of Texas has added a new category to their Big Tex Choice Awards. According to their website, “Best Taste – Sweet” and “Best Taste – Savory” will be joined by the “Most Creative” category, upping the number of semi-finalists to 30, and the number of finalists to 10.

According to D Magazine, finalists from the following list of semi-finalist contenders will be chosen by a panel of judges ranking items on “uniqueness, presentation, creativity and, of course, taste.” Judges will also consider how likely the dish will be seen as a “must-have” by State Fair visitors.
