Bakers and butchers will again go head to head in a battle of the pies, with entries due in no later than 19 November.
As well as the hotly-contested Scotch pie category, there are many other classes, including: best sausage rolls, bridies and speciality savouries, as well as the new category of football pies.
Products should be delivered to the Carnegie Conference Centre in Dunfermline, for judging, between 9.00am and 11.30am on Tuesday 27 November 2012.
The winners will be announced at a special awards ceremony in January 2013.
Alan Stuart, competition founder, said: “The World Scotch Pie Championships truly are a benchmark. We have a huge number of hard-working butchers and bakers who deserve recognition for delivering great products day in and day out.”
Butcher John G Renicks from Dumfries & Galloway took the title of World Scotch Pie Champion 2012.
