2020 competition open!


Please CLICK HERE to download the Artisan Entry Form. The Artisan Marmalade Awards are a specialist competition for small producers who make their marmalade using the tradition open-pan method, and sell their products commercially. We believe passionately in the importance of small-batch, quality preserves and these Awards have been designed to highlight and promote the best artisan producers of marmalade, not just in the UK, but in the world.

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 will be sold by Fortnum & Mason in their famous Piccadilly Store. We are looking 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!
