Cider Australia has announced that the 2020 Australian Cider Awards will be postponed due to COVID-19.
Competition organiser Cider Australia is saddened that the Australian cider community cannot come together this year to reward excellence in cider production but acknowledges the wellbeing of everyone involved takes precedence at this difficult time.
The judging of the annual cider show is held in Melbourne each October and involves a dedicated team of around 30 judges, stewards and staff, many of whom travel interstate or overseas to attend. Cider Australia has decided it is not feasible to proceed this year given the logistical challenges and health and safety risks posed by the pandemic.
We would like to thank all of our entrants, sponsors and judges for their ongoing support and will set our sights on making next year’s show bigger and better than ever.
Details about the next Awards will be announced in mid-2021.
