November Competition – your chance to be a cheese judge at ICA2018!

A competition with a difference this month! Rather than the chance to win some cheese, we’re giving you the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to help us judge next year’s entries at the biggest and best cheese show in the world, which takes place in Nantwich, Cheshire in July 2018.

Record-Breaking Cheese Show

The International Cheese Awards is a record-breaking affair, and that’s official! In July 2017, more than 250 judges drawn from across the dairy industry deliberated over an astonishing 5,685 entries from across the world, before selecting Bradbury’s Roquefort Papillon as Supreme Champion and winner of the Westminster Cup 2017. And on Tuesday 24th July we’ll be doing it all over again – and this time, you could be joining us!

One lucky winner will join our team of judges in assessing several categories of dairy products. We’ll team you up with an industry expert and provide you with all the kit you’ll need, so all you need to bring is your enthusiasm and your commitment to eating cheese at 9 o’clock in the morning (trust me – it’s easy). And as if that wasn’t enough, you’ll be invited to join us at the legendary Trade Day lunch, where you’ll enjoy a slap-up meal including quite simply the best cheeseboard you’ll ever see. Sound good? Only true cheese lovers need apply!

Enter our November Competition on Twitter and Facebook

There are two ways to enter and stand a chance of winning this very special prize. You can like our new Facebook page at and make sure you share the competition post and leave a comment telling us why you deserve to be this year’s People’s Judge. You can also keep an eye on our Twitter feed (@iCheeseAwards) for one of the special competition tweets over the coming weeks, then simply retweet, follow, and reply with the reason I should pick you! You must be able to make your way to Nantwich for 8.45am on Tuesday 24th July 2018.

Winner will be drawn from entries across both sites on 1st December 2017, so that we can pop your judging invitation in the post after Christmas. Good luck everyone!
