The Naija Top Baker Awards is a full fledged awards show to honor outstanding achievements among Nigerian bakers and thereby encourage excellence in all aspects of baking.
The concept and design of the first trophy to be issued out came from Bayo Olowu, a renowned baker and maker of baking tools. The trophy stands 14 inches tall and weighs 1kg. It features a hand from the wrist on a base holding up a whisk, sprayed in gold.
Achievements in up to 30 categories were honored on December 2nd, 2016 at the first full-fledged Naija Top Baker Awards.
All categories are open for sponsorship at N50,000 (Fifty Thousand Naira only) each. The sponsor will be branded on the trophy, acknowledged at the awards show and featured on broadcasts and magazine. Contact Michael on 08035860507.
