World Alcohol-Free Drinks Awards Now Open for Entries!

Alcohol-free is already one of the most dynamic parts of the drinks’ world. And the category just got even better, with the launch of its first ever dedicated competition.

The World Alcohol-Free Awards is the first and only competition anywhere on the planet dedicated entirely to drinks at or below 0.5% ABV and it’s now open for entries across the entire AF spectrum.

From beers to RTDs, spirits to kombuchas and wines to functionals, every non-alcoholic product is given a chance to shine, with entries accepted until the start of February.

They will be using top judges to assess what comes in. People, who, crucially, are specialised in the area of non-alcoholic drinks and understand the subtleties and complexities of the category. Head of judging, Chrissie Parkinson is one of the most respected palates in the drinks’ world, and an acknowledged expert in the area of alcohol-free.


One of the hallmarks of alc-free is that it’s open to everybody. Which is why, as well as rewarding drinks that are excellent in their field, the World AF Awards are also looking to give out special awards for products that are organic, vegan, gluten-free, halal and demonstrably ethical.

If you’d like to contact the Awards – whether that’s to be considered as a judge, or because you’ve got a question about the competition or a story that you think will interest them – you can do that via the web address at the bottom of this page. 

Hope all of our wonderful suppliers will be able to enter!
