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:
Seville Orange Marmalade (Fine, Medium or Thick Cut)
Any Citrus Marmalade (Lemon, Lime, Blood Orange, Grapefruit, other Citrus with Seville, all other citrus excluding Seville)
Reduced Sugar Marmalade
Citrus Preserve with Interesting Additions
Citrus Preserve with Alcohol
Marmalade for Savoury Food
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.
