The International Chocolate Awards is pleased to announce the Grand Jury Finalist entrants of the 2021-22 Asia-Pacific Bean-to-Bar and Craft Chocolatier Competition, which was judged remotely from May to July 2022, with final Grand Jury decisions in August 2022.
The judging panel included our regular judges, along with many of our IICCT alumni and other specialists from the local 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 a main round of 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 will receive a prize.
The full list of Finalist entries with scores will be published after the prize announcement on 20 August.
