The 2020 Artisan Awards will open this December, when the Sevilles are in season in the UK. If you think your marmalade is the best in the world, then make sure you send us a jar to be in with a chance of winning the coveted Double Gold Award. For more information and to be notified when the competition opens, please join our mailing list HERE. We will not spam you or share your information with third parties.
The Artisan Awards are an esteemed competition desgned to support and promote quality preserves made by small producers. It is open to any commercial producer who makes their marmalade using the traditional ‘open pan’ method, in accordance with UK standards. Winning an Artisan Award denotes a marmalade of incredibly high quality and helps to significantly raise the profile of your products. We are delighted to receive more and more entries from around the world as the competition grows, but we do ask international entrants to note that for the purposes of this competition a marmalade is defined as a ‘citrus preserve’ only. Therefore, all entries must be predominantly citrus (lemon, lime, orange, yuzu) as otherwise they may be classed as a jam and disqualified.
Each year all Artisan entries are judged by an expert panel and the Double Gold winners and selected Gold winners are sold at Fortnum & Mason in their famous Piccadilly Store. The Gold winners are invited to the Gold Award Winner’s reception, which launched the Marmalade Festival in March, and following this all Award winners are able to attach Gold, Silver or Bronze roundels to their winning jars, and to advertise themselves as winners of one of these coveted awards. We will be announcing new categories, judges and Awards in December 2019, when the 2020 Artisan Awards will open.
