The International Chocolate Awards is pleased to announce the Grand Jury Finalists of the Eastern European competition which was held on 8 – 12 March in Florence.

The judging panel was made up of pastry chefs, journalists, restaurant reviewers, bloggers, culinary educators and chefs, as well as members of our Grand Jury.

The Grand Jury Finalists are the entries that made it through to the final Grand Jury round, following technical Selection and Main judging rounds. 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 will receive a prize.
