This year's Americas Semi-final round is now open to receive entries.
The Semi-finals judge plain/origin dark, milk and white bars and all other categories, except for countries that have their own competition.
The competition is open to North and South American and Caribbean companies, plus Asia Pacific entrants who did not enter the European Semi-final.
The closing date for entries is 19 June with samples required by 21 June, so please get your entries in soon. You can find full details and enter online at www.internationalchocolateawards.com/enter.
Following the results of our Entrants and Industry surveys, this year we've added new white chocolate categories for flavoured bars and filled chocolates and a new 'mixed' category for filled chocolates with combinations of dark, milk or white chocolate used for the filling and coating.
Full details of the rules and categories can be downloaded in PDF form here.
We look forward to your entries and good luck to all entrants!
