There were a total of 25 competitors all bidding to take out the ultimate prize, to be crowned the best cob loaf.

The idea for the festival came from the combination of its location, Cameron Park OBell River.

International COB Loaf Federation president, Andrew Mckay, said the ultimate goal of the festival is to become an annual event.

“To put Wellington on the map for all the right reasons and to be a curtain raiser for the annual WomDomNom Paddle which supports the Black Dog Institute,” he said.

In order to take out the prize, entries were judged on single category, and were based on a points system out of 100. However, the support from the crowd played an important role in determining who would take out the People’s Choice Award.


Wellington local, Nyssa Holmes was awarded the Judge’s Award for her vegetarian cob loaf.

Wellington Times Journalist, Elouise Hawkey, took out the People’s Choice Award with her dessert cob loaf. This particular cob was a specially made chocolate-chip cob loaf with a blend of Nutella, Marshmallows and honeycomb.

And the world cob loaf champion title goes too…….. Wellington local, Nyasa Holmes
