The International Chocolate Awards aims to highlight the best in fine chocolate to consumers by judging bars and filled chocolates (bonbons, pralines, ganaches) in national and regional rounds with a Grand Final judging the best of the best. The first year, 2012 included rounds in Italy, the UK, the USA with the first year’s Grand Final in the UK in October, coinciding with Chocolate Week. 2013 added an Israeli national competition and other country rounds are in development.
Entries to the Awards are welcomed from both international chocolate makers and chocolatiers.
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.
