The other major sections of the festival are dedicated to competitions, with awards presented in several categories. These include the best food feature, the best documentary, the best fictional or animated short, told in an irreverent or unorthodox style, and the television series (fiction or non-fiction) that stood out from the glut of food programs shown on the small screen.
The award in each section is a Golden Snail, the symbol of the Slow Food movement, and in most cases a cash sum ranging from €2,000 to €5,000 (approximately $2,800 to $7,000).
