Marketing resources available to award-winning producers

Digital artwork

Add the IWSC medal to all your marketing collateral (social media posts, websites, emails, adverts, packaging, etc.) to show both trade and consumers that your wine is one of the best in the world. You can download standard resolution medal artwork for free or purchase high res versions online (£99).

Stickers

Our medal stickers will make your wine stand out on a crowded shelf and can influence customers' buying decisions. Wines awarded a gold or silver have the option of choosing between our standard medals or stickers that detail their individual score (£55 per roll).

Certificates

We’ll send all medal holders their official certificate, if requested at the time of entering, but you can also download them from our website for free. And, of course, you’ll want to frame your award and display it at trade and consumer events, as well as in your tasting room for all to see.

Tasting notes

Every award-winning wine comes with our official tasting note. We recommend using our experts' comments in all your promotions, marketing activities, on your website, at consumer and trade events, and on shelves, to boost the standing of your wine.

Marketing assets

Every winner receives a toolkit filled with free marketing assets, from social media posts and website banners, to email signatures. Why not create bottle tags to show consumers that you're an IWSC award winner?

Ideas for promoting your wine

  • Give retailers, importers and distributors access to the IWSC toolkit. This will help them create engaging point-of-sale materials to draw in customers
  • Publish an article or blog post on your website
  • Shout about your win on social media. Be sure to include your medal artwork and tag @theiwsc so we can respond
