About the Homemade Awards
The Homemade Marmalade Awards are a competition for amateur marmalade makers, which aims to find the very best homemade marmalade maker in the world, while raising lots of money for Hospice at Home along the way!
The Homemade Awards have always been the heart of the Dalemain Awards, and every year we receive entries from all over the world, including Australia, Lebanon, Brazil and Canada to name but a few! We always have lots of exciting categories and extra competitions, to ensure that there is something for every marmalade maker, from expert home-cook to adventurous first-timer.

All Homemade entries are judged by our wonderful WI judges and the full £10 entry fee goes directly to palliative care charities; so far we have raised over £270,000 for hospice care and with your help we hope to raise even more.
