2018 Best New Talent: Josh Niland, Saint Peter, Sydney

Proving that hard work and humility, dedication to craft, respect for ingredients and innovative technique can all co-exist (along with waste-consciousness, and a savvy social-media presence), Josh Niland cuts a hell of a figure in the trade - when he's not too busy, that is, cutting fillets from fresh Yamba anchovies with surgical precision, ageing familiar fish to rare succulence and making rock stars of bycatch species. Oh, and he still isn't 30. 

Finalists: Charlie Carrington, Atlas Dining, Melbourne; Danielle Alvarez, Fred's, Sydney
