Nominations are now open for Derry's best chip shop.
Nominations are now open for Derry's best chip shop.

This week is National Chip Week and we’re on the hunt for the best fish and chip shop that our area has to offer.

The Derry Journal needs you to tell us which chippies batter the competition in the race to be the best in the business.

Why should your favourite be crowned the champion?

And it couldn’t be simpler to get your nominations in. All you need to do is fill in the entry form below nominating your favourite chip shop, or nominate by text.

Whether you’re the mighty fish frier himself, or a regular at the counter, this is a great opportunity to get your chippy’s name in lights.

Once the nominations have all landed in our net, we’ll compile a shortlist of the most popular submissions.

Our chippy champions will then equip each and every shortlisted business with all they need to compete for the coveted title - including the obligatory ‘we need YOU!’ poster.

Organised by the Potato Council, National Chip Week runs from 16th to 22nd of February and is firmly established as the week to whet your whistle with a bag of tasty fish and chips.

But of course, it doesn’t end there: chippies have broadened their horizons so it might be that you want to give credit for something else!

A tasty kebab and chips. The perfect pie and chips. A succulent sausage and chips. You get the gist!

And so it has begun: 2015’s search for the Derry Journal’s champion chippy!

To nominate your favourite chippy by text type in DJLNOM, followed by a space then followed by the name of the premises you wish to niminate, your name, address and postcode to 65550. To send your nominations by post see full details in this Friday’s edition of the Derry Journal.
