Additional Awards

It’s not just about what’s inside the bottle

We don’t only reward excellence in wines and spirits – we’re also keen to champion the individuals, businesses and brands that are blazing a trail

In addition to entering our main wine, spirits and alternative drinks categories, you can also submit particularly eye-catching bottles into our Design Awards. Gin, vodka, tequila and whisky producers have the option to enter our Spirit & Mixer Awards too, while we also take nominations for a number of people and business awards.

People Awards

These categories are all about recognising outstanding individuals through accolades such as the Wine and Spirit Communicators of the Year and our Emerging Talent Awards.

Business Awards

As well as judging individual wines and spirits, we are also keen to recognise the creativity of the companies that import, sell and distribute those bottles, showcasing their excellence in encouraging a greater understanding – and sales – of quality drinks.

Design Awards

Don’t tell our tasters, but on today’s crowded shelves, the way a bottle looks is just as important as how its contents taste. And since those same tasters never see a bottle, we put packaging centre stage in our Design Awards, where we reward innovation, creativity and brand personality in label artwork, bottle design and packaging.
