June 27, 2019 10:59 am by International Chocolate Awards in Finalists

The International Chocolate Awards is pleased to announce the Grand Jury Finalists of the Scandinavian Competition which was judged in Copenhagen, Denmark from 12–16th June 2019.

The judging panel included regular European and international judges, along with pastry chefs, restaurateurs, journalists and other specialists from the Scandinavian area and members of our international Grand Jury panel.

The Grand Jury Finalists are the entries that made it through to the final Grand Jury round, following an initial technical Selection round and four days of Main Round judging. The Finalists are the nominations from which the Grand Jury select the prize winners, through private voting. The Grand Jury follow strict rules, which you can read here (PDF).

While listing as a Grand Jury Finalist is an achievement in itself, it does not necessarily indicate that the entry received a prize.
