Beer, Cider and Mead Awards

Why should producers enter The Aurora International Taste Challenge?

Winners of The Aurora International Taste Challenge will enjoy bragging rights and display their award artwork in their tasting room, in email signatures, on the product itself as well as digital and print media, royalty-free.

Superior products will be granted Gold and Double Gold status, to reward excellent quality. Exceptional products that exceed expectations will be eligible for trophy awards. Besides the normal technical criteria used during judging, wow factor and the reading on the judge’s hedonic scale of enjoyment will be taken into account. The winners will be determined on the basis of score, and the amount of winners will not be limited to three per category.

Winning producers will be able to display award artwork on the product itself, in digital media, and in print media for a period of one year from when the awards are granted. Winners will receive a digital award artwork kit with all the permutations of the artwork related to the award received, and will be able to use the artwork subject to a non-exclusive licence agreement. No royalties are charged.

Stickers for gold and double gold awards will also be available for purchase for the winners. A one-time print run will be done, and extra stickers will be available on a first come, first served basis. You do not have to order stickers.

Here is a close approximation of what the 25 x 25 mm stickers look like.

About the beer, cider and mead awards

This year The Aurora International Taste Challenge will be held in South Africa, and will have some of the top sommeliers judging beer and cider from around the world.  The goal is to identify and award the best-tasting beers, ciders and meads available to consumers. Beers are devided into more than 400 style types.

While many consumers are brand-loyal, most would choose an alternative if they had access to fair product ratings. The Aurora International Taste Challenge will grant merit and trophy awards to exceptional products readily-available worldwide. We are proud to be setting new quality standards in the food and drinks industry.

Are you top of the Hops? Are you the big Apple? An award will instantly set you apart.

Beer, cider and mead awards information

What sets one beer, cider or mead apart from another?

Products will be judged on aroma, flavour, mouthfeel and overall impression using a proprietary scoring system.

Products are tasted blind, and scored on their own merit. Judges score the products on their own in silence, without conferring with other judges.

The judge’s personal preference is not taken into account.

 

Can I use this award artwork for all the brands that this product is produced under?

The award artwork may only be used for the particular brand that was entered. If the company markets the exact same product under different brand names,  additional non-exclusive licences will be granted to be used for the additional brands the product is sold under, at the price of the original entry fee.

Who will be judging the competition?

 

Products will be judged by sommeliers who live and breathe drinks for a living, and who have an intimate knowledge of taste.

Are there any royalties involved?

No royalties are payable.

An electronic certificate will be emailed to winning participants. Subject to adherence to the terms of the non-exclusive licence agreement, winners will also have a non-exclusive licence to make use of the digital award artwork kit, with various logos and award artwork to use on their product, in email signatures, in digital and in print media for a period of one year from the time the awards are announced. No physical trophies or awards are presented.

For how long can I use the award artwork?

The award artwork may be used on the specific product and brand that was awarded, subject to non-exclusive licence agreement, for a period of one year, subject to the terms of the non-exclusive license agreement.

How many samples do I have to send?

Each entry requires a minimum of 6 containers comprising a minimum combined volume of 1500ml, and 2 containers for samples bigger than 500ml. These samples need to be in their final bottled format, and no tank samples are allowed. No kegs are allowed.

Exceptional products will be eligible for trophy awards in the following categories:

Cider and mead entries will be organised as follows:

    • Alcohol level
    • Sugar content
    • Carbonation level
    • Style
    • Flavoured or unflavoured

Beer is organised in more than 400 different types, and you can add your own. Flavoured beer is also allowed.

The different beer categories can be seen below.

What awards are awarded?

Superior products will be granted Gold and Double Gold awards, to award products with excellent taste. These producers will be able to display this award artwork on the product itself, in digital and in print media for a period of one year from when the awards are granted, as long as the quality of the product does not change from that of the original sample, and dependent on the terms of a non-exclusive licence agreement signed by both parties.

Trophy awards will also be awarded to products that really stand out in their special area.

 You can contact Marijke on Marijke.Douglas@dhl.com  or phone her on 021 872 4717. DHL will consolidate the samples to make sure they are delivered on time.

Products from outside South Africa need the necessary time to clear customs.

Contact Marijke on Marijke.Douglas@dhl.com or phone her on +27 (0)21 872 4717 for more details.

Products that are sent that have to maintain the cold chain, need to be packed accordingly, and the DHL overnight service can be used.

Late entries might not be accepted.

C/o Marijke Douglas

Make sure you arrange with Marijke on Marijke.Douglas@dhl.com or phone her on +27 (0)21 872 4717 to make sure everything will be in order. 

Do taxes and customs fees only relate to imports?

Only samples sent from outside of South Africa will accrue taxes, clearance and customs fees.

As you have partnered with DHL, do entrants get a reduced-price option?

Overnight deliveries and deliveries from outside of South Africa will be at normal DHL rates.

Will you have a show for people / companies to attend if they are not entering the competition?

The Aurora International Taste Challenge is not a trade show or public event. Only the organisers and judges are present.

There is also no prize-giving ceremony or trade / public tasting afterwards.

Rules Particular to Beer and Cider

  • Samples may not be past their sell by date.
  • Entries must be commercially available.
  • All cost related to delivery, including customs fees and taxes etc. are for the participant’s expense.
  • Only commercially-operating producers, which abide by the food laws of the country of origin, may enter.
  • Winners will be asked to supply the competition with high resolution pack shots for use on its website, and in marketing material. By entering this competition the participant grants The Aurora International Taste Challenge unlimited use of these images.
  • Be sure to securely wrap entries with bubble wrap, or similar to secure your entries against breakage. Please wrap your final package in a plastic bag and make it leak proof and to prevent leakage and damage to other products. Label samples as fragile.
  • Specialised packaging material, or any other packaging material will not be returned. Specialised packaging material can greatly increase to final quality and viability of the sample being judged.
  • If Styrofoam peanuts are used for packaging, please secure them in a container that will not cause leakage or spillage of the packaging material.
  • International entries must take the necessary precautions to prevent breakage and hold-ups in customs, and are encouraged to use local agents to deliver samples.
  • If more than one box of samples are delivered, please mark boxes as “Box 1 of 5”, “Box 2 of 5” etc.
  • After winners are announced, no additional samples are needed.
