How does it work?
The first step to entering is to register and pay for your entries online via the MyGuild portal once entry is open from 25 July 2022. You can register your company details in advance, but please try to avoid setting up a duplicate company account. If someone in your business has already got a company account, then they can add you as a user.
Consolidation points are organised across the world to receive World Cheese Awards entries from cheesemakers and from there the cheeses are transported to the judging venue.
Consolidation Point Map
Delivery instructions will be issued to confirmed entrants in October 2022 via your MyGuild account. Normally you will be asked to make delivery to the consolidation point nearest to your business and will be provided with delivery labels, guidance on the quantity to send and the latest date by which the cheeses can be received.
Please do not send any cheeses until you have received your delivery instructions.
Important information for entries from outside of the European Union (EU)
If you are planning to enter cheeses from a country outside of the EU you will be required to receive approval from the Spanish authorities to ensure that your cheeses will be accepted for delivery.
Please apply to your health authority for an official Export to EU Health Certificate. This must be signed by the health authorities in the country of origin and a copy sent to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
If you are unable to apply for an official Export to EU Health Certificate, below we have provided a template declaration certificate for completion. Please download and complete the relevant template, have this signed by an official veterinarian or competent health authority, AND also the company representative responsible for quality assurance. If you are sending BOTH cheeses made with raw milk AND cheeses made with pasteurised milk, please complete a separate copy of the certificate for each type of milk. The exporter of the cheeses must complete Part I of the health certificate.
Copies of the completed certificate(s) should be emailed to email@example.com BEFORE you send your cheeses and the original version(s) sent with your cheeses. The certificates will be forwarded to Spain ahead of the shipment of the cheeses. Any non-EU cheeses that are sent without pre-submitting a signed health certificate will not be accepted for delivery.
Template for entrants based outside of the EU (except UK): WCA21 certificate template
Template for UK-based entrants only: WCA21 certificate template UK entrants
