2020 competition closed!


Thank you to everyone who entered the 2020 Artisan Marmalade Awards. We received record entries, from over 40 countries including Cameroon, the USA, South Africa, Senegal and Singapore. We believe passionately in the importance of small-batch, quality preserves and wish the warmest of congratulations to our 2020 Double Gold winners, and to everyone who received an Award.

The full list of 2020 Award winners has been announced and can be found HERE. The 2021 Marmalade Awards will open in December 2020, when the categories will be announced and the entry form will go live.

About the Artisan Awards

Winning an Artisan Award denotes a marmalade of incredibly high quality and past winners have seen huge increases in their sales. All Artisan entries are judged by an expert panel and selected winners are sold by Fortnum & Mason in their famous Piccadilly Store. We look for all types of marmalade, including Low Sugar and Organic, so if you think you are making and selling the best preserve in the world, make sure you send us a jar in 2021!  This is a  specialist competition for small producers who make their marmalade using the tradition open-pan method, and sell their products commercially.

Entering the competition

To give you an idea of the competition, the 2020 Artisan Awards categories were:

  1. Seville Orange Marmalade (Fine, Medium or Thick Cut)
  2. Any Citrus Marmalade (Lemon, Lime, Blood Orange, Grapefruit, other Citrus with Seville, all other citrus excluding Seville)
  3. Reduced Sugar Marmalade
  4. Citrus Preserve with Interesting Additions
  5. Citrus Preserve with Alcohol
  6. Marmalade for Savoury Food
  7. Organic Marmalade

If you produce and sell your marmalade commercially, you are not eligible to enter the Homemade Awards, so please do read the terms and conditions carefully.

If you win a Double Gold, Gold, Silver or Bronze Award, you are eligible for the Award Roundels, which can be purchased through the Marmalade Awards. These can be affixed to your jars and denote a marmalade of the highest quality. All winners are also listed on our website.
