Best of Show

Winner of the Best of Show will be given the Cup with their cidery and cider name engraved on the plinth to display in their cidery for the upcoming year.

Awards

The awards ceremony will take place on Thursday, June 28 in Portland, at the Laguinitas Community Room.

Category Medals:
Gold, silver and bronze medals will be awarded to the top three scoring ciders in each category. In the extremely unlikely event that all the entries in a particular category scored very low, the category judges may decide to award no medals, or a combination of specific medals. For instance, there may be a bronze medal to the top scorer in a category and no silver and gold medals. A maximum of one gold, one silver and one bronze may be awarded per category. This award system is in contrast to GLINTCAP which awards medals based on merit with multiple gold, silver and bronze awards per category.

Other Awards:
Best of Show: Gold medals from each category will advance to the Best of Show competition for which a single winner will be selected by the lead judges from each judging group.

Large Cidery of the Year: The cidery awarded the most number of medal points (weighted with gold as 5 points, silver as 3 points, and bronze as 1 point) producing over 10,000 gallons per year in the previous tax reporting year will win the Large Cidery of the Year award. Entrants must specify total annual production in gallons to be eligible for this award.

Small Cidery of the Year: The cidery awarded the most number of medal points (weighted with gold as 5 points, silver as 3 points, and bronze as 1 point) producing under 10,000 gallons per year in the previous tax reporting year will win the Small Cidery of the Year award. Entrants must specify total annual production in gallons to be eligible for this award.

Best New Cidery of the Year: The new cidery awarded the most number of medal points (weighted with gold as 5 points, silver as 3 points, and bronze as 1 point) will win the Best New Cidery of the Year award. Entrants must specify a company start date after June 1, 2016 to be eligible for this award.  This awards also comes with a $500 cash prize!

Additional prizes may be awarded to those winners present at the awards ceremony at the discretion of the competition organizers.

Results will be posted to the competition web site after the ceremony concludes.
